Default stiffening spray or something with fragrance?

I make and sell my bows at my childrens consignment store I own and I currently buy my flower heads from a wholesaler and they STINK!!!! Like really bad, almost like a cross between dead fish and a skunk. I'm tired of wasting body splash on them and was wondering if there is something I can use on my flowers to get rid of the smell. I've tried febreze, downy spray, etc and all that mess, but nothing works. I normally just use regular starch on my bows to stiffen them and it gives them a light fragrance, but these flowers need something stronger than that. Any suggestions or ideas? I've even left them for a few days in my sunroom to air out (thinking maybe the smell is from being packed, shipped and stored in a warehouse) but nothing really helps but perfume.

A lot of times items from china stink because they package them when they are still wet from the dye and they use really harsh dyes on the items. You can set the flowers out and the smell will go away after a few days or a week. I ordered some from a group buy and soaked them in water and dried them in my dryer but they ended up fraying.

I've went with 4 different wholesale suppliers, and they all have a funky smell to them. Especially when you first open the package. :-/
