Strange, agressive behavior after bathing

We have 4 cats. Two are older females (13) and two younger males (3 and 2). The males are best buddies - they snuggle and bathe each other and do everything together.

Today we gave all of them a bath. Now, the younger male (it was his first bath) is hissing and growling at his buddy. Very aggressive and howling like I've never heard from him before.

I know that their smell is now "off", but any other ideas about why the one now hates the other? Is this temporary? The upset one is also being very skittish. Just barely lets us get near him.

I feel horrible that I traumatized him so badly!
