As Salamu Alaikum, if someone accidentally (without remembering this is scented) opened a packet of scented soap and a little bit came on one of his hands, and they washed it off but that hand remains fragrant for a bit, would that require Damm or Sadaqah in the Hanafi school?
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Using fragrances products in ihram is impermissible and constitutes Dam.
If he was using soap and realised it was fragranced, then he will give sadqah as he used it one time. Dam is given when the soap is used multiple times. (1).
Thus, it will depend on the number of times it was used. You mentioned it only touched the skin and that too by accident, thus, sadqah will suffice.
Only Allah knows best

لو غسل رأسه أو يده بأشنان فيه الطيب ، فإن كان من رآه سماه أشنانا فعليه صدقة إلا أن يغسل مرارا فدم
