Culture question

I actually have a cultural question:

After descent has begun, Nicholas came around with a gold pot of scented water. He poured some of the water on my hand and told me to rub it and smell it. I assume it is a hand washing tradition, and want to ask if anyone can tell what the ceremony is called? Or provide a term so I can look it up?

Thanks,
Carfield
