This shirt arrived smelling so bad I had to keep it outside until I could return it

This shirt smelled unbelievably strongly of ... what? I honestly don't know. Something sort of like those air freshener things people put in cars but a million times stronger. I'm not normally a person sensitive to fragrances, etc. but this shirt smelled like some sort of pesticide or air freshener chemical. At first I thought it was just something in the packaging material, so I went ahead and tried the shirt on. Then I realized it was the shirt itself with the smell. My hair even smelled like it just from pulling the shirt over my head to put it on. I had to go take a shower and wash my hair to get rid of the smell! And as I said, the smell was so strong that my husband complained too, and I had to put the open package on the back porch until I could repack it and return it.

Never encountered anything like this before, so I have no idea what the explanation is.

The other shirt I'd ordered at the same time did not have the smell - the were each in separate sealed plastic bags. But it was such an unpleasant experience I am afraid to order anything from STC again in case it were to have that smell. Unless they can explain what happened with that shirt?
