How to keep dryer sheet odor from entering apartment

What kind of filter can I attach to the dryer vent duct outside the window of my multi-unit building to keep the noxious, chemical/perfume-scented dryer sheet odor from entering my apartment?

I think charcoal filters might fit the bill but I don't know how effective they'll be and perhaps the hive knows of another approach.
The ducting is not attached to a cap or anything as it exits the building. I am anticipating have to build a frame for the filter(s) to attach to the duct.
Closing my windows every time the dryers are run is a pain but I do realize it's an option.
