methanol/isopropyl replacement

Forwarded on behalf of Dale Francke--Please respond to P2Tech or Mr. Francke directly.

You might try using ethanol.  You could probably use denatured ethanol (a
little cheaper, no alcohol tax).  They sometimes use methanol in trace
amounts to denature the ethanol and the manufacturer knows methanol doesn't
cause product problems.

Good Luck.

Subject: methanol/isopropyl replacement

I am working with a small scale fragrance manufacturer that needs to replace
methanol. The methanol is added with the perfume to distilled water and
mixed. Without the methanol the distilled water and perfume will not mix.
They have tried isopropyl alcohol but it smells and compromises the
fragrance. Any ideas for a substitute?

Thanks in advance,
