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 refill comes in a gem of a porcelain jar hand-crafted by Maison Bernardaud, the prestigious maker of Limoges porcelain. Designed for travelling, the refill is easy to remove from the jar. The refillable format demonstrates Guerlain’s commitment to a more sustainable approach to 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 focus on 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.
