Husband not liking the smell of mehndi

Q: If a man doesn’t like mendhi due to the smell, and expresses this to his wife without directly telling her to stop putting it, and she continues in spite of knowing her husband doesn’t like it, does this make her sinful?


A: If her husband does not want her to apply mehndi (due to the smell), she should obey her husband. 

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
