For bad contamination I use Super Clean, a strong commercial detergent. If there is no diesel, there is no smell. You have to check and clean everywhere. Your engine room insulation could have diesel in it. It can wick between materials or in bundles of wires. If the bilge water was high then that bilge line is where you start. Pressure washing might help for the bilge. Steam would be better. Cleaning and painting can close in the smell.
