Fine Fragrance

Fine fragrance is both the creation of an original fragrance and an olfactory intensity: perfume extract, eau de parfum, eau de toilette, cologne, body mist, solid perfume… Obtaining the right balance to create a real signature is the principle of Jean Niel perfumers.

Cosmetics / Toiletries

Knowledge of the consumers’ habits and needs as well as creativity and technical control are the foundation of cosmetic development. Jean Niel has proven, through its numerous successes, its savoir-faire in the development of cosmetic products ranging from shampoo, shower gel, deodorant, mists, to creams, exfoliants, baby care products and much more…

Home fragrance

The objective of a home fragrance is to offer a sensorial experience. The role of the fragrance is essential but must also be tested for its performance and diffusion be it for a candle, spray, reed sticks or for a spray diffuser.

Savoir-faire passed on from generation to generation


The palette of a perfumer is one of the essential sources of innovation. At Jean Niel, it is regularly enriched with quality raw materials, carefully selected, controlled at the source and transformed in our factories in Grasse. This traditional savoir-faire, preciously conserved by hemi-synthesis or the processing of raw materials, associated with modern industrial methods, helps enhance our compositions.
