Perfume Button Jewelry

Perfume Button JewelryVictorian women wore specially designed “perfume buttons” to absorb perfumes too irritating to be applied directly to their skin.

During the Civil War, the stories say that soldiers would carry the scented buttons off to battle, stitched under the lapel of their uniform, to remind them of their loved ones. How romantic!

Perfume buttons are not only beautiful, but they provide a wonderful story that is sure to be told often!
