He spent four seasons at Boulogne, and was part of the team that won promotion to Ligue 2 in 2007 and promotion to Ligue 1 in 2009 under manager Philippe Montanier. On the final match day of the 2007–08 Ligue 2 season Perinelle scored a famous goal for Boulogne in a home match against Chamois Niortais FC , who were one place above Boulogne.

Perrinelle scored his first goal in Ligue 1 on 23 December 2009 in a 2-2 draw against Nice. In four years at the club Perrinelle appeared in 99 league matches and scored 6 goals.
