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.
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
