I had a cotton dress that had a musty smell. I washed the dress in some laundry detergent and added 1 cup of white vinegar.

Make a small solution of water and vinegar and wipe down the leather furniture. I bet it will take care of your problem.

Leather does not naturally harbour smells like this unless there is a mold prescence.

You need to clean it with a special cleaner called EM Clean (LTT) which kills the spores in the leather. This is important otherwise they will just keep coming back.

In a spray bottle mix 1/2 water to 1/2 Vodka. Spray furniture. This works better than the commercial products because there's no scent. Also works as an anti microbial. Excuse any spelling errors.

I tired to Get EM Clean around town and online. The price for this British product would have been too high, so I tried a 25% chlorine solution on a sponge. The trick is to turn the couch over and spray the same solution on the frame. It worked! My dark green couch looks perfect and smells wonderful!
