The Discovery Ritual Impériale combines the three essential products in the Orchidée Impériale routine:
- The Cream (50ml): An Exceptional Complete Care product proven to be effective against the visible signs of ageing.
- The Eye and Lip Contour Cream (3ml): Skincare adapted to the skin's natural rhythms. During the day, it hydrates, smooths and enhances the eye area. At night, it detoxifies, soothes and targets milk spots.
- The Longevity Concentrate (5ml): it redensifies the areas where youthful volume has been lost, for more beautiful skin. *In vitro test on ingredient
Orchidée Impériale fragrance: a floral scent with hints of orchid that blend with notes of rose, white musk and precious cedar wood.
1. Apply the Eye and Lip Contour Cream in the morning. With the fleshy part of the fingers, pat gently and very delicately sweep outwards across the eye area and back again towards the centre. This micro-drainage targets under-eye puffiness and brings a sense of well-being. 2. Apply the Longevity Concentrate then the Cream to the face using circular movements, working outwards from the centre.
In the evening, apply the Eye and Lip Contour Cream in a thick layer like a mask. Leave on all night to allow the skin to draw the resources it needs to regenerate.

Precious, the orchid is the star ingredient of Orchidée Impériale, an exceptional range of complete skincare. A phenomenon of longevity, the orchid is one of the most highly developed species in the plant kingdom. Convinced of the orchid's potential, Guerlain created the Orchidarium® platform, devoting an entire research centre to a single ingredient for the first time. The mission of this international research centre on the Orchid and skin longevity is to learn about, understand, study and explore the potential of orchids and their biological and cosmetic properties to benefit its research on skin longevity. Within the Guerlain Orchidarium, the Guerlain Research teams run 3 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 orchids are protected and reintroduced into their natural environment.

For 15 years, Guerlain Research has been pushing back the frontiers of cellular longevity. Now it has identified a mechanism that plays a key role in longevity: cellular respiration. More effective thanks to the discovery of the extraordinary powers of a duo of orchids, Cell Respiration™ technology delivers superior efficacy inside the skin. It regulates cellular respiration and combats hypoxia* or oxygen deficiency, a phenomenon that increases with age. The cells can breathe again and maximise energy production which boosts cell regeneration*. Visible signs of ageing are minimised: wrinkles and fine lines fade, the skin regains firmness, density and elasticity, the complexion is even and more radiant. The skin is infused with a new breath of life.
