I don't want my apartment to smell like a rustic old cabin all the time.

How do I change the way my apartment smells? I'm in a long-term sublet. The place has a kind of dankness to it that I find less than ideal. It's not a bad smell, it's just kind of stifling.

But because it's a sublet, there's not a lot I can do in terms of getting rid of the possible sources of any smells. Quite honestly I just think it's got a stubborn kind of lingering smell from years of not opening windows and doors, and keeping kinda crappy couches.
So what can you all suggest for things to either absorb, transform, or mask the current smell of the apartment? What has worked for you?
I'm starting to buy plants, so if there are any specific suggestions for air purifying plants, that's helpful too.
(I am aware of a similar AskMeFi post from 2004 but the responses were limited, so I went ahead and posted a new question.)
