Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and
through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.
2 Corinthians 2:14 (NKJV)
There are a lot of things that can be said about this one little verse but the part that arrests my attention is the last part where it says that everywhere we go an aroma of Godliness should permeate the atmosphere around us. It is not our own righteousness or holiness that people "smell", but as you can see from the verse that it is God Who diffuses His own fragrance through us. Now that is in contrast to someone who covers themselves in cologne in order to camouflage an unpleasant body odor. God never masks our stench (sin). His fragrance will only emanate from a life that is free of it's own putrefying smell. What do people smell when they are with you?
