In the name of Allah the most Gracious the most Mercful

The answer to your question is as follows:

The ruling depends on alcohol contents. If alcohol used in perfume is synthetic and not made from dates or grapes, then it is permissible to use and one can apply such perfume on his dress, but if the alcohol is made from dates or grapes, it will not be permissible to use it, because it is impure. (And Allah knows best)
