If they are just iffy about the smell try to reason with them. If you go behind their backs and lie to them you are just hurting yourself in the long run. They will be less apt the negotiate and will be more convinced that you don't have the self control necessary to deny addictive and detrimental effects.
If you are straight forward and respectful you will get much farther than being deceitful and ending up in the inevitable argument and mess.
I am along the same lines here. I smoke outside when I can find a window in the seasons but I have simply put smoking on hold because my parents were kind enough to offer me a room and put food on the table. I just prefer not to rock the boat because to be honest I have a good situation here and don't want to loose this over something like trying to go behind their backs. Yes it is possible but just be aware of the risks.
