To God, you are the sweet aroma of Christ. Through you, the world should have the experience of Christ so that the father may be glorified through the son. You carry a sweet fragrance of Christ in your heart and you ought to spread it to the uttermost part of the earth, allow your aroma to spread forth to the world. Anybody who walks through a beautifully scented garden never remains the same, their sense of smell is heightened as they breathe in the fragrance, their entire being accepts the fragrance, their face lits up, their mood changes and they will most likely carry that scent to wherever they go. Your life should model this experience to the world.
When you come across anybody in the world, they ought to encounter the aroma of Christ through you. Your fragrance of Christ should rub off on people positively throughout your lifecycle. Anybody who is saved or unsaved ought to leave your presence feeling good and godly about themselves. They ought to leave your environment with the curiosity to know Christ and with the determination to be like Christ because you modelled his fragrance before them. Your life is a fragrance of Christ before God, it should spread the good news of Jesus (2 Corinthians 2:15). Your life should light the path for those in darkness, it should bring life to those who are dead, bring peace to those in turmoil and it should recover the lost, save the unsaved, heal the sick and deliver the oppressed.
Should you need a reminder or an assurance as a child of God that you are a fragrance of Christ, the speak out loud the following declarations and they will change your worldview for life.

I declare my life is a sweet aroma of Christ rising up to God as a sweet smelling offering acceptable to God. It spreads across borders and brings glory to God my father in heaven (2 Cor 2:15).
I declare my life is acceptable to God as a pleasing aroma of Christ spreading joy, peace, love and righteousness across boarders and bringing to glory God the father. God’s righteousness and holiness shows through me everywhere I go and in the sight of nations (Ezekiel 20:41).
I declare that my actions and my words are Christ-likeness. Everywhere I go they encounter Christ in me and through me. They encounter the light of the world and the salt of the earth.
