Somehow this delicious looking cream as well as the serum did not worked for me despite the hefty price tag.
After using half a jar of the cream and a bottle of the serum, I still did not see any dramatice improvements on my complexion.
Alas, would loved to loved it.

this cream is too rich for my combo skin in any season but winter. however, it is not intended for combo skin. for a winter cream it is great, although doubtfully worth the price tag. it is no miracle maker, but its nice

First of all this cream is outrageously expensive, not as bad as some la prairie creams but still, unfortunately as mush as i tried to like it, it didnt work for me.
It left a slick oily film over my face, after using it for a month i started to break out like crazy, i love the smell but thats about it.
Bought my mum a tub of this cream and she absolutely loved it, she is in her late forties and her skin is more on a dry side now, she says its the best cream she ver used, so go figure, i guess its better suited for more mature skin

This cream is incredible...expensive, but incredible. I have received two samples that I've been using religiously and I can already see a remarkable difference in my face. I had good skin before (been using Chanel for about a year) but this has definitely improved it. I'll be saving my pennies for the full size.

I have sensitive dry skin and this product works great on me. I had hesitations because its very expensive but its definitely worth it.
I have been using La Mer for 5 yrs and believe me Guerlain Orchidee Imperiale is so much better than La Mer. I dont break our from this product but its rich enough to moisturize my skin. Easily absorbed.

This is the first creme ever that I actually bought myself. Prior to this I've always used samples or cremes of my mother.
To me, this is the perfect cream, it has everything I want: it works, it does more than just moisturizing, it gives your skin the perfect balance. It's a very beautiful jar it comes in. I certainly won't throw it away once it's finished. Its perfume is derived from the ingredients and it's not too heavy. I think you should defenetily check it out at the counter.

Well, I have just begun my search for the moisturizer of my dreams and this is a very good start indeed. I have been using a large deluxe sample of this product for about a week and I have already noticed an improvement in the overall look of my skin (increased glowiness, slightly decreased pores, slightly decreased wrinkles). I am quite shocked that anything could work so quickly.
The product smells quite nice but does have a definite floral scent so if that bothers you, you should take a sniff before purchasing. I tend to be quite sensitive to smell but was not put off.
The cream itself is very thick and rich and feels quite delicious going on. It feels slightly greasy for a little while after applying so I'm guessing that this product is not right for my oily sisters. I'm more or less normal with very occasional breakouts (none at all from this though).
This would be hg material except for the price and the slight oily feeling (I'm hoping for one that sinks in a little quicker but that may not exist :)).
I'm 43, med olive skin, normal.
UPDATE: Since I finished my sample I have been totally lemming this product (and trying to get it on ebay lol). This is a wonderful cream and even beats out La Mer IMO. I will hopefully get some more and do future updates. I raised my rating from 4 to 5 because despite cost and the slight oily feeling, this is by far the best night cream I have ever tried.

After being stunned by the results of using the Orchidee Imperiale Serum I tried, I decided to try the cream. I needed a cream as I still have some serums to finish out, so I bought the original formula cream, not the new "rich" formula. I absolutely ADORE it! This cream is wonderful. It leaves my skin feeling moisturized and comfortable without a hint of greasiness. I tried it with the serum underneath and the results were fantastic. I do happen to like Chanel's Sublimage and have been using it. It can get really greasy feeling if you use too much, the Guerlain cream is much better for my skin. I like the way Orchidee Imperiale feels on my skin, better that many other creams I have tried. It's too soon to tell if there are any firming properties and the like, but so far so good. I get a nice glow from this cream as well, and it's not mica or some other light reflector, it's the cream that's doing the work. This cream does not clog my pores, which did happen with Sublimage (especially in my T-zone). I will update as the the results. Try this cream, it is phenomenal.

I really didn't want to like this product due to its anticipated high price (and wow was I stunned when I looked it up), but I got a generous sample from Nieman Marcus and used it almost every morning for about ten days. Very moisturizing, even having gotten used to the highly emollient Shiseido Future Solution for some time. Feared it might be a bit greasy as it does present as a very heavy cream, but my skin felt exceptionally comfortable in the morning even with the changing weather. Felt my upper cheek and orbital area getting a bit tight, though oddly not DRY in the afternoon: what is my skin getting tighter? Prolly not. Hate the old-lady dirty-vanilla Guerlain smell. A very good cream, nevertheless.EDIT 12/1/07: now that winter has set in, I find this cream has me feeling dry and tight by the time I get to the office. Back to my Shiseido!
