A rare and precious raw ingredient, the Orchid is the quintessence
of the Orchidée Impériale exceptional complete care range. A
real wonder of longevity, the orchid is the most developed species
in the plant kingdom. Convinced of its exceptional potential,
Guerlain established its first ever research centre devoted to a single ingredient: the Orchidarium®. The mission of this International Research Centre 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.
A RARE, POWERFUL AND INVINCIBLE ORCHID
Native to the Peruvian Andes (1), the Black Orchid (2) is an ebony-coloured wild orchid. It has the rare distinction of flowering only once a year, unlike other varieties that flower for two to three months, and – even more remarkably – bearing male and female flowers on the same plants. An invaluable quality that allows it – through an in-depth understanding of its environment – to adapt its metabolism by establishing an ongoing symbiosis with its ecosystem. In the face of dangers, excess sun or a lack of light, for example, it responds by producing more male flowers, thus encouraging the fertilisation of female flowers and, as a result, more fruit. It intelligently conserves its energy and optimises its longevity, embodying a real talisman against time.

Step 1: Apply Orchidée Impériale Black The Eye & Lip Contour Cream with your fingertips. Then stimulate the eye area using the expert massage tool with refreshing effects.
Step 2: Take a few drops of Symbioserum in the palm of your hand.
Gently massage skin with your fingertips, working outwards from the middle of the face. Make small upward circular movements to facilitate the serum’s absorption (two to three times). Finish the application along the neck.
Step 3: Apply Orchidée Impériale Black The Cream, then carry out the immuno-massage using the expert tool. Featuring two mini-rollers, it closely hugs the curves of the face, performing a massage to the very heart of skin.
