Dream Interpretation Perfume | Dream Meanings
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.

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.
