Watch: Salama Mohamed On Motherhood, Love And Finding Strength In Female Empowerment

Inspired by Rasasi’s Musk collection Emirati influencer Salama Mohamed speaks candidly to Bazaar about how three of the brand’s scents - which represent balance, strength and romance – inspire three parts of her life.

The softness of the silk contrasted with strong woody base notes sets the scene for Rasasi’s Musk-Hareer, a scent that’s all about balance.

“Don’t let anyone pressure you into being the perfect women or the perfect mother,” Salama says. “There is no perfect woman or perfect mother. We try to do the best with what life gives us.”

Musk-Sharqi is an intensely intoxicating fragrance. It’s strength mirrors the strength that Salama found when she learned she had a rare skin disorder, vitiligo.

“I feel that to gain strength, it’s very us important us women empower each other.”

The multi-faceted Musk-Naqaya represents the different dimensions of love and romance.

“The love that I have for my husband Khaled is love that I chose to give. I chose to share my life with him. But the love I have for my children is a flood of unconditional love – I can’t explain describe it.”
