There are lots of effective ways: Mix water white wine vinegar in a 3:1 ratio and wipe down the rubber surfaces. A rubber restorer, which works as a deoxidizer, also works if you want to buy something.
Putting the camera in a box or plastic bag with materials that absorb and neutralize odor such as un-brewed coffee grounds in an open container, vanilla extract poured in a low sided dish, open container of baking soda or activated charcoal.
The rubber is the main site of absorption on a camera but the plastic is not immune by any means. So rubber restorer a good long term maintenance item to have in your kit because Nikon rubber, probably Neoprene, is subject to damage by sun block, some people's skin chemistry, and many other chemicals that cause the rubber to swell, stretch, turn whitish grey, and fall off eventually. DEET insect repellant is pretty rough on the rubber also. A good rubber restorer can counter those effects but will also eliminate odors and keep the rubber parts pliable and soft, besides looking new.
