Sahih Muslim Book 7, Hadith Number 2700.

Chapter : Applying of perfume to the body before entering upon the state of Ihram.

Muhammad b. al-Muntashir reported on the authority of his father: I heard from Ibn ‘mar having said this: “It is dearer to me to rub tar (on my body) than to enter upon the state of Ihram (in a state) of shaking off the perfume.” He (the narrator) said: I went to ‘Aisha and told her about this statement of his (of Ibn ‘Umar). Thereupon she said: I applied perfume to the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) and he then went round his wives and then entered upon the state of Ihram in the morning.
