How to make a calibration profile for standard paper ?

Hello everyone !

I own:
i1Pro 2, i1 Display Pro, a Canon Pixma Pro-1.

I absolutely need to print on standard 100g paper.
The problem is,
that if I print my test charts on standard paper, and make a profile from it,
the colors are weird, especially the red color that is completely off (my scanner is calibrated and I compare to the original document).

If I make the profile on glossy paper (or matt coated), and then print on standard paper,
the result looks good, especially the dynamic range, but colors are a bit wrong (too much magenta).

I tried to adjust colors manually for hours (less magenta, more yellow etc), but colors are inaccurate.

Does anyone know what would be the best workflow to achieve accurate colors please ?

Thanks a lot !
