*((The Story behind PERFUME BUTTONS..."made in the mid-1800's, Perfume Buttons were constructed with an underlay of velvet fabric, usually with an ornate brass overlay. Perfumes of the Victorian Era were oil based, and would soil a women's' garment, therefore, these buttons were designed so women could dab their perfume on the velvet of the button, thus, protecting their clothing. During the Civil War, women would give such a button, scented with their perfume, to a husband or lover going off to war. He would stitch it under his uniform collar as a reminder of the love he left behind”)).
