Some people love the crisp, cold days that usher in fall, the season punctuated by flame-hued leaves, pumpkin spiced lattes and all the fun of Halloween. But, for others, it's a time of mourning—mourning for the summer that once was. You long for the long hot days and balmy nights spent outside in bars, on beaches and at barbecues (all the best b-words). If that ache in your heart is all too real, then we come bearing some good news. No, summer is still months away (sorry about that) but—but—there are a few key products that help you continue your summer vibes all year long. One whiff, and they instantly transport you to the blue waters of the Mediterranean, even if just in your mind; and we all know the mood-boosting effects scents can have in times of dire needs (read: when it's gloomy and gray outside). This is one of those times. Melodramatic, maybe, but if you love summer you'll totally get it.
With notes of orange, sage, cypress and pine, this beautifully chic scent from Acqua di Parma will take you back to vacations spent on chic Italian beach resorts. If you haven't been, this is the scent that will help you daydream yourself there.
Nothing screams summer quite like the scent of coconut and the silky feel of freshly-exfoliated limbs. With this scrub, you're done and done. It's satisfyingly grainy and hydrating, too.
Created by an ex-Estée Lauder fragrance exec, Veronique Gabai is a French beauty brand inspired by the breezy vibe of the founder's home in Côte d'Azur. This fast-absorbing lotion, enriched with rosewater, keeps your skin hydrated all day and comes in two scents that can be layered under any of the Veronique Gabai fragrances to slightly tweak the aroma: Eau du Jour, a bright citrus and woody scent, and Eau de la Nuit, a seductive woody musk.
Smelling of freshly-cut figs, this shower gel has the unmistakable scent of summer. It's perfect if you want to embrace those summer vibes but you're not into beachy scents like coconut. Trust us, the aroma is seriously addictive.
If your tan has started to fade, give it a boost with these clever color-correcting drops. You add up to 12 drops to your face or body cream to tailor your perfect glow. Each shade (it comes in Light, Medium and Dark) has color-correcting pigments to ensure your tan always looks luminous and never orange. So smart.
A multi-tasking mask, you can use this to prime your skin before makeup application or after to help set your face in place. It smells like fresh cucumbers, so you get that boost of summer scent and it's packed with antioxidants to keep your skin healthy, hydrated and glowing through fall and into winter.
Thanks to the frangipani, this hair mask smells incredible—think dreamy desert island. Packed with oils and pink clay, this can be used in three ways: to deep clean your scalp as a super deep conditioner in the shower or applied and left on overnight as a nourishing treatment. Afterwards, your hair will look silky soft, be easier to style and smell amazing.
Nothing screams summer more than sea salt-sodden strands but, as we know, sea salt makes for a great hair texturizer any time. This one from Herbivore has a coconut scent, so it smells like a glorious day at the beach and also makes you look like you spent all day at one. Heaven.
