Orchidée Impériale Black The Cream

The ultimate talisman of youth

Complimentary standard shipping on all orders


After more than 15 years of research, the Orchidarium and Guerlain Research reveal Orchidée Impériale Black The Cream, Guerlain’s skincare masterpiece. The extraordinary power of the Black Orchid is encapsulated at its heart. Originally from Peru*, this rare orchid increases its longevity by adapting to its environment. A true talisman to combat time. The Black Orchid is the source of the BlackimmuneTM technology. Each application helps the skin better withstand internal and external stresses and reduce the visible signs of ageing.
The Cream helps minimize wrinkles, refine the skin texture and lend definition to facial contours, leaving the skin feeling firmer and suppler as well as looking radiant.

The Cream comes in a gem of a porcelain jar hand-crafted by Maison Bernardaud. Founded in Limoges in 1863, this prestigious family-owned company is the epitome of fine French porcelain. The Cream jar is now available in a refillable version, the ultimate expression of sustainable luxury.

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 aim of this international research centre dedicated to the Orchid and skin longevity is to uncover, understand, study and explore the potential of orchids and their biological and cosmetic properties, in order to support skin longevity research. 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.
