Jeffrey Dame, a thirty-five year veteran of luxury fragrances, 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 niche perfumery today. Jeffrey Dame and his son Cullen Dame are the founders and creators of this modern American perfume line and are based in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Cullen Dame is passionate about all things fragrance and fashion. As a student at Arizona State University studying Graphic Design and Digital Culture, he keeps his father pointed in the right direction - both olfactively and in design - and reminds him that sometimes it is best to mix things up a bit and dislocate from the past.
Artist V. Dave Dame is the family patriarch and artist-in residence whose unique art pieces capture the essence of Dame Perfumery's special project fragrances, such as Black Flower Mexican Vanilla. His pen and ink drawings, water-colours, oil painting, block prints, statuary, and wood carvings bring life, context and story-telling to the fragrant essences.
