Son of a doctor from a Calvinist family originating in the Dauphiné, his younger brother Jean-Louis-Ebenezer Reynier (1771–1814) became a French army general. Trained as a botanist and academician, Reynier came to Paris at the beginning of the Revolution, joined the Cercle Social, and co-edited, with the abbé Tessier, a journal aimed at the peasantry, Journal d'agriculture à l'usage des habitants de la campagne. In January 1791, he was appointed to the editorial board of the Imprimerie Cercle Social, becoming Bonneville's assistant at the Imprimerie. He was granted French citizenship through the 1791 constitution, which guaranteed right of return to descendants of French individuals who had fled the country due to religious persecution under the ancien régime. After 9 Thermidor (27 July 1794), he published under his own name or as the Imprimerie du Cercle social, often in collaboration with Griffet de Labaume. In 1798–1799 he joined his brother on campaign in Egypt. On his return, he went to work for the new king of Naples, Joseph Bonaparte, as commissioner for posts and forests from 1807–1814.
