"I am the rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys. Like a lily among thorns is my darling among the maidens." (Song of Songs 2:1-2)  The lily among thorns is often seen as purity among pain, a picture of the Holy One on the Cross. 

The Bible is literally full of references to fragrances, whether they be the special oil used for anointing priests and kings, the incense that was burned in the tabernacle and temple, or the perfumes that were used by the people of the Bible.

The literal translation of the Hebrew word mashiach (messiah) is "anointed", which refers to a ritual of consecrating someone or something by putting holy oil upon them.  The holy anointing oil (described in Exodus 30) was used to anoint the vessels of the Tabernacle and the High Priest, and is traditionally regarded as the oil used by prophets to anoint Saul, David, and other kings of ancient Israel.
