In practice, colognes usually require about 5% unless a deluxe product is being made. Perfume generally takes about 560 grams per 45 kilogram of alcohol. Cosmetic creams and lotions are better under-perfumed, for they are generally left on the skin for prolonged periods of time. From 0.2 to 0.25% often gives a softer and more pleasant note than a higher concentration.
