As salam alaykum,
In Islam perfume occupies an esteemed place. To understand its importance, we must know that if in the West perfume is associated with the scent of seduction, in the Arab-Muslim world has an eminently spiritual character.
The Quran and hadith (sayings reported by the Prophet, salla lahu alayhi wa salam) show us that good smells are associated with all that is “close” to Allah Subhana wa Taala, like heaven or the Prophet, salla lahu alayhi wa salam. There are numerous hadith relating to fragrance, which is in itself an indication of its status.
The scholar Ibn al Qayyim explains the link between the perfume and the soul in Islam: “the good odor feeds the soul which is a source of strength and power increases by the fragrance. It is then good for the brain, the heart and all internal organs. It gladdens the heart and makes the soul happy and joyful.
It is what’s best for the soul and moreover in tune with it because there is a very close link between perfume and the good soul. “
