A bit of a Weird one
The opening of this has an intense, over-cooked candied lemons (maybe a touch of cherry) smell that is like a syrupy fruit flavoured cough medicine. If I breath out whilst smelling my arm a scent somewhat similar to Vick's Vapour Rub wafts up to my nose.

It is around two hours before some woods and florals move into place and then something about it reminds me of Hasu-no Hana (but don't let that mislead you, Hasu is a gentle powdery lovliness whereas Salma is medicinal and harsh, the resemblance to Hasu drowning under cough syrup and vapour rub).

Another hour or so and there is an undercurrent of tar like muskiness, still with the fruity cough medicine and vapour rub.

At no stage did I experience definite floral notes; the perfume remained thick, heavy, syrupy-citrus medicinal, minty, mentholated, pine tar.

Overall, trying out this perfume hasn't made me want to put my 3ml roller ball of oil into my perfume rotation; it's the cough syrup note that is rather too strong for me,

Salma is a very intense, even harsh perfume, to be used sparingly.
Clearly, from the ratings here, this is not a favourite! There is, undeniably, an initial soapy, plastic feel to this fragrance, with the pineapple not immediately evident... as it develops, that hard edge is sublimated and the sweet, dusky ingredients take over -- and endure. Still, there is a slight bite in the tail. Labdanum, one of the base notes, is a very ancient oil, possibly over-used here.

Salma is a very intense, even harsh perfume, to be used sparingly. It is not one I would wear every day, but I believe it has a place in a man's armoury of colognes. It is not one of Al Haramain's best, but an intriguing eastern flavour.

Similar to Jean Paul Gaultier 2, but it sucks.

I washed this off (2 lots of soap); next morning my arm was radiating as though I hadn't washed it off at all. Very long lasting and strong
