    Weird yes, effective yes
    this sounds like a cool one.. and fairly cost-effective too it is really doing alot better now, but i might give this a try too... better not forget them in there though, cos rotten apple smell is not that much better

    Freezing my arse off in NYC
    The previous owner of my car smoked,peewew. I just cleaned real well soak the ashtray in soapy warm water for a day,lil' febreeze doesn't hurt just make sur you keep the windows cracked and vents open. The car heats up odor comes out in the warmth just give it a place to go. My car took about three weeks for the smell to really go away, perfumes and odorizers just cover it up the windows cracked all the time will work the best, good luck.
    Hey guys, I'm back!!!

    Don't forget to have the HVAC vents flushed. The tar builds up in there and re-contaminates the rest of the car even after you've cleaned it. Or, set the system for internal recirc, pushing air out only through the top vents, and spray the hell under the dash/front of the floorboard with febreeze (create a fog if you can), then just let it circulate for a while. This will need to be done a few times to be effective, but it is also the fastest way to get it out of your interior (after detailing everything else of course).

    Or....just eat a lot of beans, close of the windows, and go for a long trip. I'll bet you won't be smelling cigarettes for long

    Couple more things about that apple.
    If you have a garage, leave the windows open will let some of the smell out along with some of the effectiveness of the apple, it's a trade-off. Leaving the windows up wont make that much of a difference, much of the odor is trapped in the apple and then the apple smell is released too.
    Also, make sure to cut the apple up in slices and leave it on a plate. The apple just sitting there wont do much, and letting a sliced apple on the rug might stain it.
