I am afraid there is not enough information. These are not trivial recipes and they often require a lot of tinkering.

We had some similar threads in the past, sorry, can't remember details and being on my mobile I can't easily search the forum. I believe glycol was one of the key compounds used, but I can be wrong.

I would start by giving it a little sniff.

This forum has a search feature which may help you find past post on this topic.
