A luxurious skincare toner to maximise the absorption of the active ingredients in the Molecular Extract and the benefits of the Imperial Ritual, while immediately soothing and moisturising the skin.
Guerlain has chosen, for its botanical richness, a rare Orchid Water, obtained by hydrodistillation of the stems, leaves and flowers.
The skin is soothed and replete with moisture – the best conditions for it to be fully receptive to the skincare ritual that follows.
Significant moisturising effect after 2 hours' application: +75%
Hydration measured using a corneometer, 10 women, measurement after 2 hours' application, comparison with a non-treated area.
Immediate effect on wrinkles: -20%
Measurement by impression and image

The first step in the Orchidée Impériale skincare ritual, the toner is applied directly with the fingers.
