I heard that it is makrooh to use perfumes in ramadan.
Did the prophet (PBUH) allow us to use perfumes (without alcohol) during fasting in Ramadan?
Please post some hadiths regarding this.

The scholars of the Standing Committee for Issuing Fatwas were asked:
Can the fasting person wear perfume?
They replied: He may put perfume on his clothes or on that which he wears on his head or body. But he should not put it in his nose.
Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah (10/328).
This is because one of the things that nullifies the fast is inhaling or putting some kind of smoke or dust into the throat. No harm in simply patting it on the body.
