Yessir, that smell stays around for years.

I had been out of the oil patch for about three years when I came across an old pair of coveralls I wore regularly. They had been duely washed before being packed away. Three years later, not only the coveralls but everything in the box reeked of heavy oil. Fortunately there wasn't anything I really needed to keep in there, so I tossed the lot.
