    Default Making TE out of NPA

    visit-red-300x50PNG
    Hey

    folks,

    I was thinking that maybe NPA is a little too strong for me - so I want to try to dilute some of my

    NPA (I have about 15 ml left). I've read somewhere that NPA is mainly a product that someone should add to his

    cologne, but I wouldn't want to do that to let me choose my scent while wearing -mones.

    If I'm not mistaken

    NPA is alcohol based. Could I just add some water? Or would alcohol be better? What I want to do is dilute some NPA

    so that it is as concentrated as TE. Judging by the values given in the Product Table of the Ph. Reference Library,

    NPA is exactly 4 times as concentrated as TE, so doing a mix of 1:4 (NPA:water/alcohol) would give me an unscented

    TE, right?

    Suggestions welcome!

    bubblebob,

    The

    Product Table
    is incorrect as regards TE's bottle content and concentration.

    Several years back the

    label of TE erroneously listed its content as "20 mL" when it in fact contained 24 mL.
    The calculations that went

    into the product table were based on that mis-labeling.

    A corrected version would list its concentration as

    0.01% or 0.1 mg/mL.

    So a conversion factor for NPA to TE dilution would be closer to 5.
    (4.8 to be

    precise.)

    Thanks for the correction,

    oscar - I had the feeling that I had read something other than 1:4 on the board before...

    The question

    remaining is: Is it okay to use water to dilute the NPA or should I better get some ethanol?

    You want to use 100 proof

    clear liquor to mix it, which is the base it's already in.

    I mix Burberry Weekend with NPA

    5:1 in a small atomizer. 3 or 4 zaps and I'm a babe magnet. My all time fav mix.

    NPA is really to strong for

    dabbing. It's best used as designed: mixing with colognes.

    Yeah, I've thought to do the

    same thing. I only got NPA because it was on special. Edge is way more convenient.

    I've learned my lesson,

    that one dab of NPA means exactly that, even though it hardly seems anything gets on your finger. I still to this

    day doubt myself whenever I use it.

    I've never tried the cologne mixing thing -- seems like I lose control a

    bit that way.
