    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

    1/ Don't know
    2/ No
    3/ Yes

    I'll bet it would be great for cuff-links, tie clips, that sort of thing.

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

    1)what Doc said

    2) see 1

    3) see 1

    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.

    No worries....buy a few cheap Gurkha cigars and throw them in there, one's you'll never smoke. Problem solved.
