Paul Lecaron was the son of Émile Lecaron and Stéphanie Lecaron (née Gellé). His mother was the daughter of the perfumer Jean-Baptiste Gellé, owner of the company Gellé frères (Gellé Brothers). Émile Lecaron subsequently became a business associate of Jean-Baptiste Gellé and helped develop the company, which he renamed Lecaron et fils (Lecaron and Sons) and into which he brought his sons Paul and Maurice. Paul Lecaron eventually became manager of the company and was also President of the Trade Association of Perfumers. In the early 1890s, Paul Lecaron was head of the tennis committee at the Racing Club de France in Paris and, in 1895, helped to found the Tennis Club de Paris together with André Masson and several other interested parties. He was also the first president of the latter club. In 1921, Paul Lecaron was made a Knight of the Legion Honour, while in 1926 he was made an officer in the same order of merit.
