An incident regarding Abu Bakr Al Miski

Question

I would like to know if this incident is true?

It is reported that Abu Bakr al-Miski was once asked: “We always find a good scent emanating from you, why or how?”

He replied: “By Allah, for years I have not used any perfume, but the reason for the good smell has to do with what I passed through. A woman once tricked me into entering her home. Then she closed and locked the door behind her, after which she began to seduce me. I became utterly bewildered as to what I should do, for I had no options before me. I said to her: “I need to go and purify myself.” She ordered her servant to take me to the bathroom, and when I entered it, I took faeces in my hand and wiped it all over my body. Then I returned to her in that state. Shocked to see me like that, the woman ordered that I be removed from her home. I left and immediately had a bath.

That very night I saw a dream; in it, it was said to me: “You have done that which no else has ever done before. I will make your smell good and pure in this world and in the hereafter.”

When I woke up, the smell of perfume was emanating from my body, and it has continued to emanate from my body until this very moment.”
