I'm curious about any suggestions you may have on the best methods for extracting fragrance from various cosmetic bases (shampoos, lotions, condtioners, etc.).  Currently, I am using a pentane extraction method and a simple distillation method.  My GC runs are hit-and-miss.  So, I'm wondering if there is something else I should be doing.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
