Thanks to the discovery of the prodigious powers of a duo of orchids, Orchidée Impériale cream combats all the visible signs of ageing even more effectively.
The contemporary design of the jar displays Guerlain's commitment to environmental excellence: an object of beauty that minimises its impact on the environment for a more sustainable approach to luxury.
Orchidée Impériale Fragrance: a floral scent with hints of orchid that blend with notes of rose, white musk and precious cedar wood
Guerlain Orchidée Impériale Cream is an exceptional complete care product proven by medical experts and confirmed by women to have beneficial effects on the signs of skin ageing and on the emotions. Guerlain is also interested in how the product's performance is perceived by close circles. Because beauty is what connects us with ourselves and others.
The Orchid, a rare and precious raw ingredient, is the very essence of the exceptional complete care range Orchidée Impériale. A genuine longevity prodigy, the orchid is the most developed species in the plant kingdom. Convinced of its exceptional potential, Guerlain set up its first research centre ever to be devoted to an ingredient: the Orchidarium®.
The mission of this International Research Center on the Orchid and skin longevity is to discover, understand, study and explore the potential of orchids and their biological and cosmetic properties to benefit its research on skin longevity. Guerlain Research runs three interrelated and complementary centres:
The Experimental Garden — Geneva (Switzerland)
A greenhouse where a collection of Guerlain orchids is housed in order to study and identify the most remarkable species.
The Basic Research Laboratory — Strasbourg (France)
The first basic research unit dedicated to the study of orchids and the identification and analysis of longevity molecules.
The Exploratory Nature Reserve — TianZi (Yunnan, China)
A nature reserve - a pillar of biodiversity and conservation - where wild orchids are protected and reintroduced into their natural environment. Learn about our work in Yunnan on guerlain.com
The Orchidarium revealed the extraordinary powers of a duo of orchids, including Gastrodia elata, an orchid essential to traditional Chinese medicine.
Guerlain Research now adds precious diamond powder to the new Orchidée Impériale Cream formula. This rare raw material is able to capture light energy and diffuse it in all directions thanks to the ""faceted"" nature of diamond. The result is an instant sophisticated radiance.
Directions for use
Experts at the Guerlain Institute have developed an exclusive technique which, for the first time, combines professional massage with breathing exercises to maximise the benefits of the Cream. This unique sensory experience is also an opportunity to spend quality time reconnecting with yourself, to restore harmony and inner balance.
1- Before application: Breathe & prepare the skin
On a clean, dry face that has been previously washed with Orchidée Impériale Cleansing Foam, apply pressure slowly and firmly with the fleshy part of the fingers on the chin, the corner of the mouth, under the nose, between the eyebrows, above the arch of the eyebrows and at the level of the temples. Breathe in as you press and breathe out on release.
2- Applying the Cream: Smooth
After applying your lotion and serum, take some cream with the spatula and apply with the fleshy part of the fingers to the chin, cheeks, forehead and nose, taking care to smooth the skin outwards from the middle of the face.
3- After application:
Clench your fists and place them on your cheeks. Pressing firmly, work upwards with a rotational movement while breathing out forcibly. Repeat on the jawline, forehead, neck and finally the décolleté in time with the out-breath.
Place your left hand on your forehead and your right hand on your right cheek. Gently slide both hands simultaneously towards the left around the contours of the face. At the same time, lean your head towards the left and breathe deeply. Do the same on the other side. Repeat three times.
