How do you get rid of the smell of smoke in the house?

We decided to light a fire in the fireplace a few days ago, not knowing that there was a problem with the damper. Some smoke went up but a lot of it came into the house. We have since fixed the problem with the flue, but the smell is still quite strong. I have tried using Febreze, and also simmered orange peels and cinnamon sticks, but it's not enough. I would love to just open all our windows, but it's too cold. Any suggestions?
