Imam MalikDisapprovedNarration from Safwan b. Ya'la b
For the statement of Aisha (RA) in response to Ibn Umar, they said that if he visited his wives, then, he must have taken a bath (afterwards), and only the smell of perfume remained upon him, not its substance.
Imam Abu Hanifa,Imam Shafi,Imam AhmadPermittedNarration from Aisha

They relied on the tradition related from Aisha, who having heard about the rejection by Ibn Umar of the use of perfume prior to the ihram said, "May Allah have mercy on the father of Abd al-Rahman, I perfumed the Messenger of Alkih (God’s peace and blessings he upon him) and he visited his wives and then arose in the morning in a state of ihram'
