Canny multitasking compact from Penhaligon’s

The solid version of the brand’s spicy Malabah scent doubles as a highlighter

Penhaligon’s silver-plated compact (£44) is a canny multitasker. It contains a solid version of the brand’s Malabah scent – a mix of spices, ginger and rose – that also serves as a subtle highlighter for the décolleté. Just sweep the fragrant silky shea butter across the collarbones.


The grand dame of luxury delights in the 21st-century revival of Pommade Divine’s Calming Balm and finds the best portable compact in the Clarins perfect eyes and brow palette.
