Fiqh-us-Sunnah Volume 5, Hajj and ‘Umrah, Fiqh 5.032A.

Section : Wearing Some Perfume.

The perfume may be used on the body as well as the Hajj garb, even if it should continue to smell afterwards.

‘Aishah said: “It is as if I can still (in retrospection) see the traces of perfume glittering on the Prophet’s head while he was in the state of ihram.” (Reported by sukhari and Muslim) She also reported: “I used to apply perfume to the Prophet (peace be upon him) before he wore his Hajj garb, and again when he ended his state of ihram, but before he had made Tawaf around the Ka’bah.” (Bukhari and Muslim) In another report transmitted by Ahmad and Abu Daw’ ud, ‘Aishah said: “We used to go to Makkah with Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him), and when we wore our Hajj garb we used to sprinkle musk on our foreheads. And if one of us was sweating or perspiring it would run down her face. The Prophet (peace be upon him) would notice this but did not prohibit its use.”
