At its heart is encapsulated the power of the Black Orchid¹. Native to Peru, it adapts to its environment to optimize its survival, embodying a talisman against time. It has given rise to BlackImmune™ technology, a revolutionary approach to the skin’s self-defense.
Each application helps the delicate areas around the eyes and lips become more resistant to external aggressions. Protected, skin can concentrate on its rejuvenation to fight against the visible signs of aging. Composed of a hint of precious 24-karat gold, The Eye and Lip Contour Cream fuses infuses the skin with youth and light. Inspired by the gestures of Guerlain's spa expertise, a massage tool has been specifically developed to be used in synergy with this exceptional care.

Continuously protected, skin can thus devote its resources to its rejuvenation, for skin that appears more beautiful and younger-looking, for longer.

A RARE, POWERFUL, ENDURING ORCHID
Native to the peruvian Andes, the Black Orchid¹ is an ebony-coloured wild orchid. It has the rare distinction of flowering only two weeks a year, 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.

AN EXCEPTIONAL JAR HAND-CRAFTED BY THE MAISON BERNARDAUD
The Eye and Lip Contour Cream nestles at the heart of a refillable porcelain jar realised in an artisan manner by the maison Bernardaud. Established since 1863 in Limoges, this prestigious family-owned manufacture has epitomised the excellence of french porcelain for over 150 years.
Handcrafted, this jar is enameled in black and enhanced with 24-carat gold.
Refillable, it embodies the expression of a more sustainable luxury.
Apply in the morning and evening before La Crème Orchidée Impériale Black.
Take the cream with the smaller end of the applicator and then perform the massage gesture with its round part.
EYE CONTOUR 1. SMOOTH: draw a "figure eight" passing under the eyebrow and then slide back under the eye, from the temple to the inner corner of the eye. Repeat this gesture on the other eye. 2. DRAIN: Apply deep, slow and progressive pressure with the round part of the applicator on each of the "acu-pressure points" below for 5 seconds, then release the pressure for another 5 seconds. To relax the entire eye contour area, apply pressure midway between the two eyebrows. To improve skin tone: apply pressure to the inner corner of the eye. Then, while maintaining contact, glide under the eyebrow until you press on the "tail" of the eyebrow and on the temples. Proceed from the "tail" of the brow to the inner corner of the eye, patting gently under the eye. Repeat for the other eye.
LIP CONTOUR 1. SMOOTH: press firmly and smooth, sweeping along the natural lip contour line, first in one direction, then the other. Perform a similar maneuver, but replace the sweeping motion with gentle patting to plump up the lips. 2. DRAIN: to gently stimulate the skin: apply pressure to a point between the cupid's bow and the nose.
