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.

Just read about fennel seeds as well. I'll probably give it a whirl.

I've never been a fan of fennel seeds but I will have to give this a try as well.

Fennel works chew them before bed.


Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

Noshing on the bearded clam works for me.

While brushing teeth, scrape off that white stuff on tongue. It reduces most bad breath including cigar breath..

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.

I typical enjoy my cigars later afternoon or early evening.

Have found enjoying a post smoke meal with a tomato base sauce (pizza, ravioli, etc.) helps minimize smoke mouth the next morning.

Coprophagia will mask the cigar smell. Never tried it myself.


At times like these I really wish I'd listened to what my mother told me when I was young.'
`Why, what did she tell you?'
`I don't know, I didn't listen.'"

Out of one, many.

I second the SmartMouth Mouthwash, CA actually did a write up of it to help prevent cigar mouth a while back. Thats why I picked it up has helped ever since.

Bought fennel seeds at the store yesterday and tried them. They do a pretty good job.
