03 Aug 2018

The effortless glow of French skin has landed at JOYCE Beauty with Féret Parfumeur – an iconic French family brand established over 150 years ago. From the days of Napoleon III’s rule in 1865 to the globalised 1970s, Féret Frères enjoyed worldwide prestige as France’s leading manufacturer and distributor of French and international perfumes and beauty products. For the past four decades, Féret Parfumeur has focused on its own high-quality, natural products with its trademark retro packaging, including the award-winning Bloc Hyalin and acclaimed Hyalomiel gel.


The entire Féret Parfumeur range is made in France with natural, sulfate-free ingredients such as organic honey and essential oils that are always gentle and effective. Nearly 150 years of history has crafted a treasure trove of naturally refreshing, moisturising and protective products that benefit women and men of every age. The brand’s incredible heritage has also produced Féret Parfumeur’s distinct nostalgic packaging that conjures the savoir-vivre of post-revolutionary France.
