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. This technology impacts on 95% of cells involved in the skin’s self-defence system*. With every application, the skin becomes more resistant. Continuously protected, it can concentrate on revitalising itself to combat visible signs of ageing. Wrinkles appear to fade, the skin's texture is more refined and facial contours look more defined. The skin is firmer, more supple and unbelievably radiant. The Cream nestles safely in a jewel-shaped porcelain jar hand-crafted by Maison Bernardaud. Based in Limoges since 1863, this prestigious family manufacturing business has embodied French porcelain craftsmanship. The Cream jar is now refillable, the ultimate expression of sustainable luxury.

Fragrance

Orchidée Impériale fragrance: a floral scent with hints of orchid that blend with notes of rose, white musk and precious cedar wood.
