Are all dry cleaners created equal? Recommendations please

Hi RS.

I have a CMFR Oxton Bomber. It's a down filled Bomber, similar class to a Canada Goose.

I just pulled it out of storage and it has a smell to it. It's not a terrible smell, but it doesn't smell clean.

I'm thinking it needs a good cleaning.

Can someone recommend a dry cleaner

might febreezing it and airing it out not be the first step?

assuming it isn't dirty (the source of the smell being the dirt), then surely that option would be a good starting point
