Abu Dawud Book 27, Hadith Number 4037.

Chapter : The view that disapproves of wearing silk.

Narated By Imran ibn Husayn : The Prophet (PBUH) said: I do not ride on purple, or wear a garment dyed with saffron, or wear shirt hemmed with silk. Pointing to the collar of his shirt al-Hasan (al-Basri) said: The perfume used by men should have an odour but no colour, and the perfume used by women should have a colour but no odour.

Sa’id said: I think he said: They interpreted his tradition about perfume used by women as applying when she comes out. But when she is with her husband, she may use any perfume she wishes.
