Islamic Interpretation of Dreams (Ibn-i Sirin):
Perfuming oneself with sweet incense in a dream means having a good friendship.
An incense burner or holder in a dream represents a certitude that is praiseworthy. Perfume in a dream basically means good, though to a bedridden person it means death.
This category includes amber, henna plant (Lawsonia inermis, bot.), or fumigating oneself with sweet incense, though there is a danger that could arise from the smoke in the dream. Perfuming oneself with amber in a dream means increase in earnings that will come through the labor of a rich person who is associated with the one seeing the dream.
The seeds of any dark colored perfume such as carnation, clove, or their powder, etcetera, means receiving praises.
The elements encompassed herein include richness after poverty, knowledge after ignorance, peace with oneâs adversaries, bribery, divulging oneâs secrets, ingratiating oneself to a superior for personal gains, or adulation.
Incense in a dream also represents the heat of oneâs love or passion.
In a dream, perfuming oneself with incense also means using an amulet or a charm to repel jealousy, or to break through the stratagem of sorcery.
Incense in a dream also means using charm to bring peace, tranquillity and profits if one intends so in his dream.
