Creators and Founders
Three Generation Perfumery from Arizona USA
Grandfather and Father and Son
The American father and son creative team of Jeffrey Dame and his son Cullen Dame are the founders of Dame Perfumery. Jeffrey and Cullen are joined by Artist-In-Residence Grandfather V. Dave Dame who creates original art pen & ink drawings for the DAME Artist Collection perfumes. Jeffrey Dame is a thirty-five year veteran of luxury fragrance creation and has travelled to all corners of the world in a lifetime of perfumery. He started his perfumery career in the buying office at Neiman-Marcus in Dallas and spent a few decades in New York and Paris working in fragrance for Estee Lauder, Parfums Caron Paris and with the American fashion designers Oscar de la Renta, Bill Blass, Geoffrey Beene, Vicky Tiel, Todd Oldham and Marc Jacobs at Perry Ellis. Jeffrey Dame is a notable creative personality within global perfumery. Cullen Dame is passionate about all things fragrance and fashion, and is a student at Arizona State University studying Graphic Design and Digital Culture. He keeps his father pointed in the right direction - both in design and olfactively - and reminds him that sometimes it is best to mix things up a bit and dislocate from the past. They sometimes argue about who has the better hair. Ted the dog has an important place too as Customer Relations Special Liaison.
