Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types
Matthew 16:23 (a) The influence which Peter sought to have on JESUS is compared to human odor. It did not come from GOD, but came evidently from Satan. The "odor" of our lives reveals whether we are being activated by motives from Heaven, or human influences.
2 Corinthians 2:14 (b) This is symbolic of that peculiar influence given out by a person either for good or for evil. In this passage it evidently refers to the sweet presence of the Lord in the soul which may be realized by those about Him. But in verse16 it refers also to the message for the unsaved concerning their coming punishment.
Ephesians 5:2 (a) The life of CHRIST was so perfect, so beautiful, and so pleasing to GOD that it is compared to the fragrant incense which ascended from the golden altar in the holy place.
