People's opinions (positive or negative) of the scents of different flowers can vary dramatically. One person's nominee for the next great perfume sensation may be another person's candidate for a quick burial. This is true mainly in the context of strongly-scented blooms: the power of their fragrance can engender diametrically-opposed appraisals.
I'm constantly reminded of this fact in spring when my wife and I go out on walks. Encountering Andromeda shrubs, my own first thought is "Pieris," but my wife's is "pee." That's because the powerful aroma of its bell-shaped blooms reminds her of nothing so much as cat pee.
So it is with some hesitation that I present this list of ten bad-smelling flowers. It would not shock me at all to have someone write in and contradict me regarding this or that of my choices, passionately defending the plant as no stinkpot. This subject is, after all, subjective. But as far as I'm concerned, the ten flowers in this list belong in Pepé Le Pew's garden.
