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 Research Centre is made up of three complementary centres run by Guerlain Research:

- The Experimental Garden — Geneva (Switzerland)
- The Basic Research Laboratory — Strasbourg (France)
- The Exploratory Nature Reserve — TianZi (Yunnan, China)

Orchidée Impériale Brightening care incorporate a precious orchid –- Dendrobium nobile. To preserve this rare species, the Orchidarium employs a painstaking specialist cell culture technique to extract the initial cell of the orchid. The initial cell, the first native cell, is as yet undifferentiated, remaining pure and unaltered. A first in cosmetics.


We reveal the provenance of our raw materials and unveil all the stages involved in creating our products, "from the flower field to you".

Orchidée Impériale Brightening: the power to minimize the appearance of shadows accumulated over the years and revive the skin's youthful radiance

Because young-looking skin also comes from an even, luminous complexion, Orchidée Impériale Brightening products combine the complete age-defying efficacy of Cell Respiration™ Technology with the illuminating power of Orchid Noble Light™ Technology.

Guerlain Research draws on the latest discoveries in epigenetics and the essential causes of complexion ageing and the appearance of dark spots (age, environment and lifestyle), to develop the Orchid Noble Light™ Technology*.
