Like Makeup, you can hide your naturalness by covering yourself with a mask. Putting on perfume may symbolize covering up feelings to appear more amicable even though something 'doesn't smell right' or is bugging you. When your perfume or smell is the focus of a dream, you are exploring your magnetism or what attracts others to you. Smelling perfume that is sweet symbolizes attraction and a desire to experience beauty. Smell is a powerful memory trigger and the perfume may have associations with past experiences. A perfume bottle is delicate and can represent delicate aspects of femininity. Also see Odor.
