Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah
Can anyone inform me if it’s permissible to put itr on a female kafn after ghusl? Putting camphor is masnoon but not sure of itr?

In Al-Hidayah it is mentioned that incense is applied to the kafn (burial shroud), and this is further elaborated upon to mean perfume, hence, camphor or itr can be applied. (1)
