First, aaaarrrgggh, sorry to hear about that smelly ol' skunk leaving his calling card.

I haven't (personally) had run-ins with skunks, but I have had a dead rat or two in my time. Not much better!

A couple of things to try. First, try some searches. There have been numerous posts about odors; one of them might shed some light (if that is the right word!) on the problem. Second--try a PET store! There are products out there that NEUTRALIZE (as opposed to covering up) skunk and other animal odors. I can't recall any names off-hand, but they are appropriately named (like "SKUNK-OFF", or something to that effect).

Good luck, welcome to the forum, and let us know how you make out! In the meantime, a clothespin over the nose helps, LOL!
