Have a good sniff around to see if you can find the source. Then try bicarbonate of soda, test a patch for colour fastness you can't see before doing the whole couch. Sprinkle bicarbonate of soda liberally over your couch, on the floor where it stood and down between the seat cushions too, leave it overnight and brush off the next day with a soft cloth, use the Hoover attachment between the cushions.
