The Guerlain Spa Is Parisian Luxury in Toronto

Beauty institute.

From its earliest days, the Guerlain name has been as synonymous with skin-care as with perfume. In 1939, Guerlain opened one of the world’s first spas on the Champs Élysées, and now Canada has its first Guerlain Spa, opened in Toronto at the Hotel X. Entering the world of Guerlain beauty in Toronto is to be greeted by an impressive display of perfume bottles—the company has put its name to nearly 800 perfumes—before segueing to the lounge with its sweeping view of Lake Ontario.


To begin, guests are asked to choose an olfactory theme that will guide their treatment, and the beauty experts perform skin analysis and diagnosis to ensure the best-looking, most-effective results. A host of treatments, from 30 minutes for microdermabrasion enhancement to three hours for the signature Orchidée Impériale ultimate face and body are offered, all using, of course, the decadent Guerlain skin-care products. Yield to the art of pampering in this ever-so-elegant Guerlain spa.
