help-how do I rid strong finish order on new furniture

Need remedy to get rid of strong pugnant finish order from new wood night stands. Made in China and they put something on them (oil ??) which literally emits this order almost like strong cedar smell. Since I can't ID the smell I am afraid it may me caustic and harmful to our health.

Airing the furniture out will likely be the best course of action. Once the vehicle evaporates, the smell will be gone. If this is offgassing of the finish or something in or on the wood, only time will cure it. If you could set it in the garage for a couple of days, this may do it.

Hope this helps.
