The Imperial Ritual combines the three essential products in the Orchidée Impériale routine:
- The Eye & Lip Contour Cream (15ml): A treatment that adapts to the skin's natural rhythm. Day : it hydrates, smooths and sublimates the look. Night : it detoxifies, rests and targets fat granules.
- The Longevity Concentrate (30ml): A true “cosmetic fuel”, this ultra-concentrated serum boasts powerful revitalising properties, helping to remarkably reduce the signs of skin ageing.
- The Cream (50ml): An exceptional complete care treatment that delivers a proven efficacy on all signs of ageing.

Fragrance

Orchidée Impériale fragrance: a floral scent with hints of orchid that blend with notes of rose, white musk and precious cedar wood.

Expert formulas

For 15 years, Guerlain Research has been pushing back the frontiers of cellular longevity. Now it has identified a new 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, new 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*. All the 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.

Effectiveness

Orchidée Impériale is an exceptional complete care range, renowned for its effectiveness on the signs of skin ageing and the sensory pleasure of its textures.

Ingredients

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
