IsoPropyl Myristate as Fixative in perfumes?


I have read in some blogs that the "IsoPropyl Myristate" is a good product to get certain essences to be more fixative in perfumes, especially in essences that do not have a high fixative power.

I have made a test, but when I add the water in the final mixture, the oils are separated from the mixture.

I used this formula:

50% of alcohol + 20% of IPM (mix boths) then I add 5% of Benzyl benzoate, next I add 5% of Glycerin, and then all the essences (15%) (all poured drop by drop on a continuous agitator). When I finish pouring everything, the result is a crystalline mixture where all the products are mixed perfectly. I let it settle for four weeks, and then I add the 10% of water, and when I add it creates a kind of liquid cloud. Once it dissipates and returns to its crystalline state, a separation of the liquid products of the resinous ones is created.

I use the "IsoPropyl Myristate" because I need my perfume have a more lasting aroma, especially with the essences that are not very powerful.
Can somebody help me? because I don't know if the % of the formula are poorly stated or what...

Thanks for your help and advises
Best wishes
