In 1974, armed with a passion for chemistry and a vision to unite the color and fragrance markets, Peter French founded French Color & Fragrance. In the early days of the company, he worked tirelessly to build an organization that made it simple for the candle industry to find color and scent solutions under one roof. As the organization grew so did Peter’s vision. Today, Peter oversees French Color & Fragrance’s operation that provides color and fragrance solutions to a broad range of industries all over the world. He is recognized by employees and clients as a genuine and kind man who firmly believes in the value of treating people right. Peter is currently studying German, enjoys tap dancing, and promotes the love of theater to all ages, especially children.

Carilyn’s early career began in social work, the beginning of her lifelong passion to help others realize their goals. Skills in problem solving later served her well in the corporate world of product development, marketing, and corporate sales. Today, as company president, Carilyn draws on these experiences as she works to expand the collaborative, respectful culture that is the essence of French, continuing the tradition of “treating people right”. On the client side, that trickles down to respect for our clients… really (really) listening to them, uncovering ways to help solve their problems, and facilitating the creation of innovative fragrance, colors, and helpful solutions to make them more successful. A lover of music and a former marching band member, Carilyn is finding new enjoyment in the world of sports. From baseball, football to wrestling, she takes great pride in watching her two (very lovable) boys compete.
