Does anyone have an idea how to remove perfume from leather? I recently purchased from a friend who was moving a beautiful LazyBoy recliner for me! It is apparently saturated with her perfume or else someone spilled perfume on the chair. I tried cleaning with saddlesoap. The chair looks spectacularly clean but the odor lingers. Any suggestions?

Got these from a 'removing smells from leather, list'. Febreeze, set outside, spray UNDERNEATH and let set. (not in the sun of course)

Atmosclear, sold at Ace Hardware. Said by a gentleman who upholsters furniture for a living, to work wonders on leather smells.

Just repeating what I've read. (leather furniture and ferrets DO NOT MIX...they will eat it...)

I cant remember what its called and it was a few years ago I saw it, but there is a cleaner that actually has the leather smell as a perfume in it! Its used mainly by leather salesmen to enhance the smell of leather and make you buy it. So sorry I cant remember what its called etc but it may be worth hunting around for if you cant get rid of the perfume smell.
