I always recommend a respirator that will filter organics. Anything
less than positive pressure is going to be less effective, but 3M does
sell a pretty good strap on mask for organics. You have to reseal it in
the air tight bag when you're done with it because it's only good for
about 8 hours of in air use, but they do work well and are affordable.
I think they are around $30 at autobody supply houses.
3M and North are two major brands.
Consider the price and availability of replacement cartridges when
choosing the mask.
Here's a web link http://www.coopersafety.com/respirators.aspx
- not a recommendation for buying there - but for info.

I bought a 3M one at Home Depot for about $25-$40 but I'm not where I can
easily find the model number. But it can be fitted with several levels
of dust filter plus organic vapors cartridges. I've had mine for 2-3
years now and I'm happy with it.
how well ventilated is your space
some of that stuff burns my eyes so my choice was a full face mask
or go outdoors for the smelly stuff
outdoors works but has limits depending on the stuff you are working
with and temps
