Aromatic wood humidor


New Member
My wife took a trip to Morocco with 3 of her girlfriends and brought me back a beautiful
Humidor made from a very aromatic wood that is indigeonous to Morocco. I think it’s called Thuya wood. Anyway is extremely aromatic. I’ve had it for a few months and the aroma has certainly calmed down a lot, but it is still very aromatic-too aromatic to store cigars I believe.

Couple of questions:
1. Any ideas on eliminating or significantly reducing the aroma
2. Would cellophane wrapped cigars be a barrier to the aroma
3. Will in open boxes for long term aging be affected

Looks like it’s a jewelry box and not a Humidor.

There does seem to be some humidors made of Thuya but I’m not certain the difference in the manufacturing process.

I think you’re right CMontoya. Jewelry box. but I wouldn’t want to hurt my wife’s feelings by telling her that she got fooled. Beautiful box though

Seems like a silly question, but have you left the box open or closed? Leaving it open may get rid of the smell. Sometimes they just spray it to achieve that smell.
