- What is the difference between smelling incense and nose drops in terms of the fact that the first one breaks your fast and the second one does not?
- The difference between them is that the one that is breathed in, then its entering the stomach is something that is done on purpose. As far as the nose drops, then there is no desire to have it reach the stomach, but rather only the nose and nasal passage only.
