Hey guys, I found Givaudan distributors in India, whose fragrance I plan on trying. But they don't know the per pound % in making soap. So anyone who used their fragrance and have an idea on the percentage to be used?

I checked their site, seems more like they are making perfume then fragrance oils. Perfumes won't work in soap, you need FO that is labeled as safe for soap making. Using the wrong products can cause issues like seizing and volcanoes.
If you still want to try one of the scents, make a small batch with 3% which comes out to roughly 1/2 oz PPO.

You need the IFRA sheet for each fragrance to determine the maximum you can safely to soap. This can range from <1% to 100%. Most fragrances are added between 2 and 6% of the oil weight. It takes some testing to figure out how much of each FO you need to add to get the scent where you want it to be once the soap is fully cured.

They gave a pdf with the sample and it says it is stable in soap, shampoo, bath foam and detergent. but did not specify the %.
