When I first learned about perfumed buttons I thought I'd not heard anything quite so romantic. These unique and rare buttons have a touch of velvet within them. By adding a touch of scent to their buttons, Victorian women avoided staining their fine fabrics and silks with perfume.
Now for the romantic part. It is said that during the Civil War young ladies would remove a perfumed button from their dress and present it as a sweet memento to a loved one when he went off to war. Romance and history come together beautifully in these exquisite one-of-a-kind button earrings which are available in my online shop now.
