Down pillows and bedding must be thoroughly dried in order to prevent mildew from forming.  If your pillows became wet either through high humidity, washing, or some other way, lay them in the sun for many hours.  Do this over the course of several days.  That should dry the pillow out and freshen the smell.  If they still smell, you could spray Fabreeze on them and leave them in the sun until the spray has dried.
