Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types
Psalm 45:8 (b) It is interesting to note that GOD uses all of our senses to convey truths concerning Himself. The very sweet effects of fellowship with GOD are described as fragrant perfumes. It is so in this Scripture and in other passages. Somehow the heart is warmed and the soul is refreshed when the Lord JESUS CHRIST is presented to us by the Holy Spirit through His Word. (See also Song of Solomon 4:10).
Isaiah 3:24 (b) There should have come up to GOD from Israel the sweet incense of their worship, love, thanksgiving and praise. Instead of that GOD saw and heard only their worship of idols, their evil practices, their wicked ways, all of which were most distasteful to Him.
Hosea 14:6 (b) This is a prophecy concerning the day when Israel will again be a God-fearing nation, loving the Lord, obeying His Word, and honoring His Name. GOD compares this to the fragrant perfume from beautiful flowers.
