May the husband wear perfume or cologne:

Men are not to wear perfume or cologne when they are going outside of their home.[1] However, inside their home, for the sake of one’s wife, it is permitted to put on men’s cologne.[2] However, women’s perfume should not be worn due to a possible prohibition of Beged Isha.[3]


[1] See Brachos 43b and Rambam Dei’os 5:9

[2] See sources ibid which only negate walking outside with cologne; Beir Sarim 6:59 [permits men’s cologne]

[3] See Beir Sarim ibid; Beir Moshe 4:119 [negates it due to Beged Isha]
