Liddell-Scott-Jones Definitions

εὐωδ-ία,

Ion. -ιη, ἡ, sweet smell, Hdt. 4.75, X. Smp. 2.3, etc.; esp. of sacrifices, ὀσμὴ -ίας LXX Genesis 8:21 : metaph. in Ephesians 5:2 : in pl., Pl. Ti. 65a: in pl., also, fragrant substances, D.S. 1.84.

Thayer's Expanded Definition

εὐωδία, εὐωδίας, (from εὐώδης; and this from εὖ and ὄζω, perfect ὄδωδα);

a. a sweet smell, fragrance, (Xenophon, Plato, Plutarch, Herodian, others); metaphorically, Χριστοῦ εὐωδία ἐσμεν τῷ Θεῷ, i. e. (dropping the figurative) our efficiency in which the power of Christ himself is at work is well-pleasing to God, 2 Corinthians 2:15.

b. a fragrant or sweet-smelling thing, incense: Diodorus 1, 84; 1 Esdr. 1:11, etc.; hence, ὀσμή εὐωδίας, an odor of something sweet-smelling, in the Sept. often for רֵיחַ־נִיחוחַ, an odor of acquiescence, satisfaction; a sweet odor, spoken of the smell of sacrifices and oblations, Exodus 29:18; Leviticus 1:9, 13, 17, etc., agreeably to the ancient (anthropopathic) notion that God smells and is pleased with the odor of sacrifices, Genesis 8:21; in the N. T. by a metaphor borrowed from sacrifices, a thing well-pleasing to God: Ephesians 5:2; Philippians 4:18 (Winer's Grammar, 605 (562) cf. 237 (222)).
