Perfume made of alcohol

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftisays.com
assalamualaikum. we the general people really do not understand which perfume is made of ethyl alcohol or scientific terms like that. pl clarify if it is permissible to use perfume made of any kind of alcohol or the best way is to avoid them and look for alcohol free perfumes.

Answer
In the Name of Allah, the Inspirer of Truth.
Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

Cosmetic alcohols:As a rule, alcohols (as long as they are not sourced from dates or grapes) for external use in the form of medicines or beauty products are permissible. If they are for internal use then the ruling applied is: impermissible unless there is no suitable alternative. So yes, the alcohols mentioned would be permissible for external use.

The alcohol used is Ethyl Alcohol, which is derived from petroleum-based materials or from material grains such as starch or other carbohydrates hence not from dates and grapes and Halaal to use.
And Allah knows Best
