Ruling on a Fasting Person Smelling Perfume?
Question:

What is the ruling on a fasting person smelling perfume?
Answer:

There is no objection to a fasting person smelling perfume, regardless of whether it is oil or incense. But if it is incense, then he should not inhale its smoke, because the smoke has particles which pass through to the stomach, and so will break his fast like water or something similar. But as for just smelling it without inhaling it so that it reaches his stomach, there is no objection to that.
