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

The Orchidarium revealed the extraordinary powers of a duo of orchids, including Gastrodia elata, an orchid essential to traditional Chinese medicine.

Orchidée Impériale Brightening caress include a third precious orchid – Dendrobium nobile. To preserve this rare species, the Orchidarium employs a meticulous specialist cell-culture technique to extract the initial cell of the orchid. This initial or native cell is undifferentiated, remaining pure and unaltered. A first in cosmetics.

Guerlain Research now adds precious diamond powder to the Orchidée Impériale Cream formula. This rare raw material is able to capture light energy and diffuse it in all directions thanks to the "faceted" nature of diamond. The result is an instant sophisticated radiance.


Once a week: cleanse your skin, apply Lotion and Serum(s), then use the Mask instead of the Cream.

1 – Upper part of face: stretch the mask over the forehead by sliding the palms from the centre to the temples.
2 – Lower part of the face: slide the hands over the mask from the chin up to the temples.
Leave for 10 minutes. Remove the 2 parts. Massage in the rest of the cream to ensure it is absorbed.
