    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 662/658/N)

     

    If the perfume contains alcohol made of grapes, dates or raisin then such perfume is najis (impure) and thus prohibited even a drop of it. But, nowadays alcohols used in perfumes are generally not made from grapes, dates or raisins but they are made of other vegetables. Perfumes containing such alcohol are allowable to use but it is better to avoid it and use attar.  

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
