There is scent free Febreeze -- it actually came first but didn't sell well until they put those overpowering scents in it... I have "sensitivities" to many things, but especially those labeled things like "baby fresh". In general, I can handle natural citrus, pine, rosemary, etc., but chemical scents are usually a no go.


I also like the charcoal odor removal technique for cars/trunks, don't know how well it would remove the perfume but can't hurt (if you put it in a bag. Same thing with the baking soda.

I would place it in a lidded plastic container or any sealable container with wadded up newspaper and charcoal, inside and outside the bag. Close up the container and let it set for a couple days or so. I just used the grilling charcoal we had on hand, not the kind with starter in it. This removes odors and does not introduce any new scents.

I put coffee grinds in it and stopped the smell.
