Like diving headfirst into clear, salty waters, the limited edition Marc Jacobs Daisy Daze fragrance is as inviting as it is invigorating. A sparkling blend of zingy mandarin and mirabelle plum, it’s a bright, luminous scent that provides an olfactive escape to another (warmer) universe. And because nothing lasts forever – not even the elusive eternal summer – the initial crispness softens down to a smooth, creamy musk. Housed in a peach and mint version of the iconic Daisy vessel, it’s radiant and warm and nostalgic all at once… as all summer days should be.

Call it summer magic, but there’s something about warmth, salt and long, languid swims that just makes you glow. This so-called magic is fleeting at best, but Chanel has managed to bottle it, creating luminosity and light in the form of Le Blanc Rosy Light Drops. An incredibly soft shade of pink, the drops are designed to be washed across the high points of the face, or simply buffed all over for a fresh, luminous complexion. Sheer and buildable, it’s a summer glow that’s made to last.

If summer had a colour, it would surely be sun-drenched shades of burnt peach, hazy pink and gold-flecked sand. The Mecca Max Dream Queen Eye and Face Palette captures the magic of a short-lived summer sunset in 15 warm molten hues, from Earthy mattes to brilliant dappled shimmers. Pigmented and punchy, buff in a mix of saturated pinks, reds and bronze across lids and cheeks, or simply imitate first light with a barely-there wash of diffused shimmer. Multi-purpose and cruelty-free, it really is the summer palette of dreams.
