Right now I'm living in an apartment building with neighbors above me and on either side. I'm thinking about starting a small grow but I'm curious about how I'm going to manage the smell. There is a drop ceiling in my apartment and my suspicion is that it's not very airtight so anything I do I'm pretty sure my neighbors will smell like cooking burning candles etc. I have one in line fan and a carbon filter. Anyone care to offer help?

Ozone takes smell (can you smell the terpenes?) and essentially bonds with it and forms a dust. If you time and calculate your ozone just right you shouldn't have a problem, but I wouldn't have it going full blast all the time in the plant zone. Duct it so it has time to react and disperse. You can smell it pretty easy and it does not last very long before it reacts with the smell in the air.
Those small 12v one's I was reading the description that hunters will use them in the car to remove any odor on the way to the woods.
So yes, if you did too much you'd probably notice a difference in flavor. Ducting and timing will be your best bet, even if you have to duct it around the ceiling of the room one loop and blow back into the same room. If the ducting is long enough for the amount of ozone and air flow there should be no scent or ozone coming out the tail end.
My ducting was old so I got the cheapest $1/roll packing tape and completely covered it to eliminate any holes for it to escape prematurely.
