getting rid of pax odors on flight

I've been on flights where foul odors have waffed into my area. Other than put a kleenex over my nose (or my nose in my shirt), is there a spray or any other suggestion we can use to purify the air in our area?

What could you spray in the cabin that wouldn't bother people or that would be allowed? Maybe get one of these to wear:

Or you could use the coroner's trick of putting some Vick's Vapo Rub under your nose.

I would try the vicker vapo rub under the nose. Not only will block odour but it will help under plug your nose.

Love the vapor rub idea. I once had a whimpering puppy under my seat, then the horrid smell, thought maybe the pup would be quiet then, no such luck. So I got to listen to whimpering and gag over the smell. The flight was only an hour, but felt much longer that trip.
