Women allowed to wear perfume?


I would like to know if women are allowed to wear any kind of perfume perfume (musk or attar or even alcoholic perfume) to zikr?

Also, I’ve heard of the hadith where it says that a woman who wears perfume and goes out is like an adultress, but what if her intention is not to attract men, but only to smell good for her own personal satisfaction?


Based on saheeh evidence Muslim women are to understand the seriousness of the sin of going against Shari’ah. It is with no doubt a sin.

The biologists have recently discovered a sexual gland in the nose. This shows a connection between the senses of smell and provocation of desire.
