Question
A cigar absorbs the odor of cedar and that changes the flavor in aging.
What is a word for a product that absorbs odors like this?

Thank you so much
Mike

Answer
Hi Mike,

if you are talking about a commercial product that removes odors from the air then you would mean either an deodorizer, or an "anti-odorant".

If you mean something that inherently absorbs a smell and changes it's properties...I'm not sure.
