Founder of Carol’s Daughter, Lisa Price transformed a beloved hobby of mixing fragrances and creams at home into a multi-million dollar beauty empire. In the early 1990s, Price began experimenting with making her own fragrances and perfume sprays when she wasn’t busy working on the legendary sitcom, “The Cosby Show.” She also added oils to unscented lotions and began learning the aromatherapeutic and healing properties of the oils. In 1992, when the show ended, Price began selling her homespun beauty products at flea markets, but then set up shop in her living room as demand increased. In 1994, she officially established Carol’s Daughter, named after her mother. Almost overnight, celebrities like Jada Pinkett-Smith, Erykah Badu, Rosie Perez and Halle Berry became loyal customers. Today, Carol’s Daughter sells millions of dollars worth of products, employs more than 80 staff members and boasts nine stores across the country, with a flagship store in Harlem. She is also the author of Success Never Smelled So Sweet, a remarkable memoir that chronicles her transformation from a young Black woman deep in debt and burdened by low self-esteem to the president of a multi-million dollar business.
