Jeanne Arthes is part of the Arthes Group, a French perfume company based in Grasse. Founded in 1978, the company began marketing its fragrances in the 1980s throughout the world, and in 1987, secured funding to purchase its own manufacturing facilities in Grasse, the worldwide "cradle of perfume." The company was installed in the Grasse industrial park in 1995, and began negotiating with mass market retailers worldwide for the distribution of its products.
Jeanne Arthes scents are distributed in France through mass-market retails such as Auchan, Leclerc, Magasin U, Carrefour and Intermarche.
The exporting of Jeanne Arthes fragrances through mass market outlets outside France accounts for more than 75% of the company's product turnover.
