another option for "Geruchsveredler" is "odor neutralizer" - a product that is applied after the source of a particular bad smell has been removed - these "odor neutralizers" can have a smell/aroma of their own but the smell is not supposed to be perceived as offensive -

this is a more general term for a product/ that gets rid of bad smell.

But for the context here, I think we are looking at a product that tries to add a smell/aroma = perfume.

better say - the smell of an odor neutralizer should not be perceived as very strong presence (of course it should never be offensive)

Oft geht es beim Duftmarketing darum, vorhandene Gerüche zu überdecken. So überlagert der richtige Duft negative Gerüche von Reinigungsmitteln, Zigarettenkonsum, Küchenbenutzung, Benzinumfüllung, Toiletten, Schweißausbruch, Tierhaltung und vielem mehr. Auch hier gilt, nicht zu übertreiben, um nicht unglaubwürdig zu wirken. So kann der Gummigeruch der Reifen in einem Autohaus vielleicht durch Blumenduft verbessert werden; allemal glaubwürdiger ist es jedoch, klassischen Ledergeruch einzusetzen und damit die Ledersitze zu betonen.
