Stinky Sofa

Hello everyone. I was recently given a sofa that the previous owners had stored in their basement for a while. It is a beautiful couch, but it has a musty smell to it. I had Stanley Steemer come out to clean it and they put some kind of sanitizer/deodorizer on it - it smelled perfumey for about a week but is now back to smelling musty. Is there any way to get the smell out? Would febreze work? Is there something else I could buy that might deodorize it better? Does it just need to air out over time? Help! It perfectly matches my other furniture so I really don't want to get rid of it!!! Thanks mucho!
