How to get rid of smoke smell from harmonica?!?

I couldn't afford a new chromatic harmonica, so I got a used on eBay, and it smells of smoke. I hope that just playing it after using mint mouth spray or something would work...what do you have to say?

It has wooden reeds, everything else is metal. I've seen how to take them apart on YouTube, but if it's just something that goes away naturally, I won't bother.

Ok, what you have here is a problem that most likely WON'T go away unless something is done - the reason it won't go away is because the former (smoker) owner in the process of playing the harmonica got their saliva (with smoke smell) deep into the reed channels of the instrument.
Sounds gross, but that's the reality of the instrument and it is why regular retail outlets can't sell used harmonicas.
You've also got a wooden COMB (not reeds) and it might be slightly permeable also. Because of the wooden comb, you certainly can't immerse it in water.
It looks like you'd like to avoid taking the harmonica apart - if so, you COULD try misting (with a spray bottle) some isopropyl alcohol into the harmonica holes and then turning the harmonica holes-down to "drip dry", so to speak. It may or may not work.
See, another issue going on inside a chromatic harmonica is the plastic wind-savers that cover the reeds - the alcohol could possibly damage them or cause them to stick.
You are going to have to do SOMETHING, though, because you are dealing with someone else's saliva in your instrument.
If it was me, I'd try taking off the cover plates first (the big top and bottom sheets on the outside - the "bread" of the "tin sandwich") and then try the alcohol misting and drying, making sure with a small pin or something that things aren't getting stuck in the process.
If none of this works you'll have to take it apart further - research how to do it, use a video camera to document how you do it, so you can put it back together again!

ps: don't put it somewhere such as in a jar of coffee as someone suggested - this might work for a lot of other things, but your harmonica will be rendered unplayable
