Most savage gear lures have their ‘strike provoking scent’ impregnated. You won’t get rid of it if that’s the smell you mean.
Gunki have gone down the aniseed route they absolutely stink.

Take them out of the packaging and hang them up somewhere.

It'll take a while, but the smell does go away :thumbs:

I bought a bunch of Line Thru trout and they absolutely stank, straight out of the packaging. They don't smell at all now.
