In 2266, after Ruth Bonaventure's presence near the dormant medical scanner activated it, Doctor Leonard McCoy asked Ruth if she was wearing an unusual kind of perfume, to which she replied, "No, I'm just me." (TOS: "Mudd's Women")

Aboard the USS Enterprise in 2266, Charles Evans gave a gift of perfume to Yeoman Janice Rand. This kind of perfume was colored green and was Rand's favorite type of perfume. It wasn't available from ship's stores, so she asked Evans where he got it, though he gave her no answer and she hurriedly left to attend to her duties. (TOS: "Charlie X")

Males from Angel I used perfume in spray flacons quite frequently. When Data saw the perfume, he called it "an alcohol-based synthetic, artificially reproducing a floral scent." When asking about the purpose of a perfume, Counselor Troi added that some cultures consider perfume an aphrodisiac. (TNG: "Angel One")

Kevin Uxbridge's recreation of his wife Rishon was so convincing that Captain Jean-Luc Picard could even smell her perfume. (TNG: "The Survivors")

In an ultimately unused line of dialogue from the final draft script of TOS: "The Naked Time", "Captain" Kevin Riley informed the crew of the USS Enterprise, while suffering from polywater intoxication, that all female crewmen who attended an upcoming formal dance would each be "issued one pint of perfume from ship's stores."
In a stage direction from the final revised draft script of TOS: "The Conscience of the King", Lenore Karidian was characterized as "wafting" perfume as she walked off the bridge of the Enterprise.
