Ditto on boolee's comment, and ditto on alloy's comment. I just read about fennel seeds this week. Also, I almost never smoke non-cubans these days. Since I switched to CCs, my wife has never mentioned anything about cigar breath. She does, however, still complain about my clothes smelling of smoke. Oh well.
I seem to remember anchovie2 raising the point of alcohol-based mouthwashes being risky for tobacco smokers.
I use a modified chlorine mouthwash called UltraDex (formerly RetarDex, believe it or not). Works astonishingly well, and has no taste, which I like. You can buy it from Amazon.
It's not only about oral hygiene, however. If you want to get rid of all traces of the aroma (a shame, I rather like the taste) you should change your clothes, put your smoky ones far away, shower and use a neti pot.
If you still get complaints, your partner simply doesn't want you to smoke cigars.

Try a cucumber slice and or a lime wedge. The acids in both will cut through the lingering smoke. The lime juice is a bonus because of the high amount of juice. Make sure you wash or swirl around completely.

Coprophagia will mask the cigar smell. Never tried it myself.
The problem with the French is they have no word for entrepreneur. G W Bush. What makes him think a middle-aged actor, who's played with a chimp, could have a future in politics? Ronald Reagan A conservative is a man with two perfectly good legs who, however, has never learned how to walk forward. Franklin D Roosevelt Out of one, many.
I got these things in asia. Not sure what they are exactly bc i cant read korean and i threw out the package, but they are something like 99.9% silver or something. Tiny lil pebble things. 4-5 of em and the taste is all gone within 10 min
