Asalaam Alaikum,

Wearing or smelling perfume does not break ones fast.

What if it has alcohol in it??

If you enter a room and someone is smoking and you inhale it, this also does not break your fast. - Think this can apply to smell of alchohol.

Not my thought. My thought is alcohol being in the perfume and spraying your skin thus going into your skin. If mouth wash has alcohol you can't use it during fast so why is perfume ok???

Sorry, the comment i previously stated would be if you entered a room and inhaled the alcohol/smoke unintentionally.

However, if you inhale the perfume/smoke by intentionally drawing it towards you this will break your fast. Have a read at the link i posted.

I did read it. But it still doesn't speak concerning alcohol in perfume. This is what I want cleared.

I understand where you're coming from, however, the alchohol generally found in perfumes/deodorants is not haraam to use

Thanks alhamdulillah my Allah reward you. Now what about the fatwa on woman wearing perfume any time ? This in itself is a concern
