Harness The Power Of Black Orchid With Guerlain’s Orchidée Impériale Black Collection
Guerlain’s Orchidée Impériale Black collection is a testament to the extraordinary potency of the Peruvian Black Orchid plant—and how power and delicacy can combine to create an exceptional skincare line.
A Precious Flower
Flowering for only three weeks each year, the Peruvian Andes Black Orchid is one of the world’s most precious plants. By cleverly adapting its metabolism to its environment, it’s able to conserve energy and optimise its longevity—a rare time-defying quality that inspired Guerlain to use it in skincare.
Blackimmune Technology is the foundation behind Guerlain’s Orchidée Impériale Black collection—including its newest creation, Black Eye And Lip Contour Cream. With the latest cream focusing on the face’s most delicate areas, this key ingredient helps strengthen the skin’s self-defence mechanism, allowing it to concentrate its resources on regenerating and combatting visible signs of ageing.
The Black Eye And Lip Contour Cream also includes Spilanthes flower extracts, which target sensitive areas of the face to reduce crow’s feet and lip lines, alongside silver, ivory and pink pearls set with ultra-fine 24-carat gold particles that diffuse light, delivering a radiant, glowing complexion.
Boasting a divinely velvety texture that effortlessly melts into skin, Black Eye And Lip Contour Cream features a custom-made massage tool. Crafted from metal to give a cooling soothing sensation, its design means it can be used across both the contours of the face and around the lips and eyes, giving a stimulating massage that perfectly complements the cream’s dreamily soft balm-in-cream texture and smoothing, de-puffing action.
Used together with Guerlain’s iconic original Orchidée Impériale Black The Cream—which also utilises Blackimmune Technology to create the ultimate protective shield for skin’s youthfulness—your whole face can experience the remarkable rejuvenatory powers of the Black Orchid flower. Signs of tiredness and ageing blur away, the lip’s contours are redefined and the eye area is noticeably brighter and lifted, with skin appearing immediately firmer, tighter and smoother.
Exceptional skincare deserves equally exceptional packaging—which is exactly why Guerlain turned to master porcelain house Bernardaud to create the cream’s stunning black lacquer case.
Both brands have been pioneers in their fields for over 150 years, making them ideal collaborators. More than 50 artisans are involved in the painstaking creation and quality control of each Orchidée Impériale Black pot, from making the case’s mould to firing the porcelain multiple times.
The result is a sophisticated porcelain case with a delicate white interior and glossy black enamel finish, topped with 24-carat gold. In line with Guerlain’s commitment to sustainability, the case has been designed to be refillable—the definition of luxury that’s built to last.
From your first touch of the beautiful porcelain jar to the cashmere-soft texture of the cream itself and its incredible revitalising effects, Guerlain’s Orchidée Impériale Black collection promises to take you on a true sensory odyssey.
