How long a person's scent remains on their clothing

My character finds his lover's old sweatshirt a month or two after the lover's death, and I was wondering whether he'd still be able to smell the lover's scent on the clothing or not by that point.  It's been stored in a military locker, and the lover didn't wear any cologne and only smoked very, very occasionally.

I've tried various Google searches, and all I've gotten are websites about how long scent lasts that a canine can track.

Thanks for your help!
