For a woman to dream of using perfume on herself predicts an unusual new heart interest; for a man this dream signifies misunderstandings in both personal and business affairs.

General Meaning: Perfume, oil, myrrh and incense often share the same interpretations.

• Some common interpretations for perfume are: Our praise to the Lord, being beautified, being prepared, being honored and being cleansed.

• Perfume changes your emotions and causes you to be drawn to it. It can be a pleasant experience, or it can speak of being caught in a trap.

• Referring to how perfume lifts the emotions: • Proverbs 27:9 Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so [does] the sweetness of a man’s friend by hearty counsel.

• Dreams • Positive: A bride was prepared with oils and perfume to prepare her for her wedding night. Esther is a good example of this.

• This speaks of the Bride of Christ being prepared and made ready for her Groom. It speaks of her falling in love with her Groom - which is Jesus Christ.

• The Scriptures also speak of our praise being as incense before the Lord; that it is a pleasing smell before Him.

• Incense was offered before the Lord twenty-four hours a day under the Old Covenant. Our incense is our praise and worship.

• Speaking of the Love of Bride and Groom • Song of Solomon 4:10 How beautiful is your love, my beloved, [my] bride! how much better is your love than wine! and the fragrance of your perfume than all spices! • As believers we also diffuse the perfume of Christ everywhere we go - or we should anyway! • Because of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, as we go through this world, we carry that treasure inside of us.

• It is just like wearing perfume. Everyone that passes you should be effected by it. I give a good description of this in the Practical Prophetic Ministry book when teaching on the ministry of the prophet.

• 2 Corinthians 2:14 Now thanks [be] to God, which always causes us to triumph in Christ, and makes manifest the savor of his knowledge by us in every place.

Negative: The Scripture also speaks of the perfume of the harlot and adulteress.

• It speaks of being captured and seduced into the things of the world; of being deceived into thinking that you are being offered something good, when in fact it is false and full of sin.

• Speaking of the harlot (world) that seduces; a love that is false and empty: • Proverbs 7:171 have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.

• 18 Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves.

• 22 He goes after her immediately as an ox goes to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks

Good smell: good feelings; non-verbalised intimations or love.
