frankincense

Here is my best explanation:

'resin' is the definition.
(thesaurus)

'feminine anger about foul-smelling' is the wordplay.
'feminine' becomes 'f' (abbreviation listed in Chambers).
'anger' becomes 'incense' (incensing is a kind of angering**).
'about' says to put letters next to each other.
'foul-smelling' becomes 'rank' (I've seen this before).
'incense' after 'rank' is 'rankincense'.
'f'+'rankincense'='FRANKINCENSE'
