Smell from protein skimmer

Any ideas on handling or reducing the smell from protein skimmer in room?
I empty the cup and clean it when it gets half full but my wife still can detect the smell from it in the room.

Clean it out more often? That stuff is stinky for sure, especially for those that don't care for that "natural odor"!

This isn't how to fix it, but how to mask it... One of those in- wall febreezes that go off every hour or two?

It's funny I can't smell it unless I take the collection cup off and remove the top and my wife says it makes the Room stink lol

Not under the tank, but in the room. I think they cover pretty far radiuses
