The principle is that any alcohol derived from dates or grapes is impure, but the alcohol derived from any thing other than dates and grapes is prohibited for oral use, but is not impure. Since the alcohol used in perfumes is mostly synthetic, it is not impure. It is, therefore, permissible to wear such a perfume and to offer prayer with clothes having such a perfume, unless it is known for sure that the alcohol used in it is made of dates or grapes.
