Eviscerated Decomposing Body
Last time I smelled a dead burnt body was at my redneck bbq aa few years back. I ain't never ever gon try that again
The only thing worse than a morgue I've smelled was a burt dead 8 year old. Prolly because your brain associates it.
Try not to gag while reading this one.
Sulfur doesn't smell so bad once you travel through Georgia a few times. I can even keep my window down.

eew, just the smell alone makes me want to throw up myself.


I hate vomit, barf, throw up, spewing, and blowing chunks. I will scream and start crying if I am 6 feet or closer to someone who feels sick or throws up. and I feel sick the whole day after that. D: D':
Talk about the worst smells ever... Just the smell of it makes me gag.

3Raw Sewage

Someone who feels sick or throws up. And I feel sick the whole day after that.
: )

I think sewage is bad smelling as rats are in sewers and they smell horrid so that mixedin with garbage and poo is horrible

I love the smell of skunk! It's a wonderful smell!
Skunks got one HORRID smell. Laugh out loud
Stinky and gross. It sucks if you get sprayed. And it's even WROSE if you drive and run over one.

Though I'm a girl, I'm not one of those perfume girls who do nothing but stare at themselves and bully others. They smell terrible! It's just... Oh god.. It smells like concentrated bathroom cleaner and laundry soap. There's even one time when this girl was spraying some stuff around in class, and it smelled exactly like human feces. No joke. :(
Very true, they say Guys smell just to divert from the fact that they are repulsive sometimes


Offensive! Believe me, I'm no girly girl (I love metal and Call of Duty), but I am surely offended that you say we smell horrible. I may wear perfume (one small spray_) but does that mean I smell?
But I agree at the same time. Some perfume isn't good, or they wear too much.

6Rotten Eggs
Hm, this smells strangely like my dog's fart... But not as bad.


A TRULY ROTTEN EGG... not just one a little yucky or past its time, but the kind that EXPLODE a grey muck of death is the WORST smell EVER! Beyond anything I have ever encountered in my whole life! No skunk, puke, poop, or even rotten animal can compare. THE WORST! I pray I never have to smell this ever again!
My bro vomited because of the smell And that didn't smell any thing like it por! Mmm...

7Dog Fart
just pray to god your dog dosnt fart on a Eviscerated Decomposing Body thats a sign of the appocalipse


If any of you have a dog that farts, you can relate with this. If a dog fart has woken you up in the middle of the night, you know it's bad.


I've often wondered what they put in dog food that makes dog farts smell so horrible.

8Body Odor
Oh Boy man does it stink. I got a Brother at home that never showers, and all day he forces me to sniff his armpits.
There was a hobo that lived in my apartment complex, and then one day I got stuck in the elevator with him. GOD, kill me! He smelled so bad, I just wanted to DIE!


What is this not in the list? Armpit smell is the WORST smell ever!

The Contenders

11Cat Poo
My bro, my dad and I were watching a movie and my brother turned to my dad and says what is that AWFUL REVOLTING VILE PUTRID smell, my dad replied what do you mean? And then about 2 minutes latr my dad started laughing because my bro left the room because of the putrid smell and then dad smelt it, he started screaming his lungs out, I cracked up laughing because I could not smell it and then it hit me, IT WAS REVOLTING, I went outside the house and started screaming, my brother and my dad both held their breath till my bro used his common sense and sprayed the air freshener and then turned the fans on, I wlked back in and sat down and continued on with the movie, then about half an hour the air freshener wore pff and it was still as putrid and vile as before... Only worse, there are no words to describe how bad it smelt, as soon as it left we all took a deep breath,
After my story, you wouldn't think it would happen again, now if only that was true
It came back for a third time and this time it was worse (which I was suprised was even possible) only this time I threw up at the smell I was throwing up 3 days aftr the cats litterbox was changed but the smell just lingered in my house

I love having a cat but
I have a really big Ragdoll cat, and his glistening sweaty turds are as large as my labradors, only they stink 100x worse. The beast is so large that he doesn't fit into the litter tray, so he always scraps at the wooden floor instead of covering up his wretch inducing filth.

Cat poo WREAKS!
You can never walk in the house and not smell this awful stink from this cat.

14Dog Poo
Ooh just the thought if this makes me shiver in a really bad way. Haha dog poo that's still warm and soft oh good god that is one of the worst things you'll ever smell. The smell spreads so far too there's no avoiding it, even from a distance!
If you have ever stepped in a big, steaming pile of dog poo, you know what I'm talking about.

17Fat Man Poo

19Dirty Diapers

20Morning Breath

My mom has REALLY bad morning breath. It always makes me gag! This morning I had to wash my face with soap because the breath was that bad. I usually offer her a piece of gum

Just smelled my stepbrother's breath (he just woke up and didn't brush), and it was one of the most disgusting things I have ever smelled! I immediately had to run from my room because of it and wait for him to get out.

21Stagnant Water

22Dead Animal
Ugh oof ooof eww uugggle ogggle goo. My apologies for vomiting from the smell.

23Wet Dog
There are many disgusting smells that don't bother me as much as they should because I'm a mom who's raised three kids... Vomit, rancid farts, regular poop, diarrhea, etc. The #1 WORST smell ever for me is wet dog. Sometims even just a dirty dog needing a bath is enough to make me puke. Either of those smells just ruin it for me & I'm nauseated & unable to eat for days!
I love my dog to bits.. Siberian husky! But when he has been on a 2 hr hack with my horse through puddles and bog there is no worse smell! The drive home is challenging!
Oh gosh wet dog is THE WORST!

25Rotten Milk
I can't stand the smell of rotten milk. I accidentally left a carton of it in my bookbag and it leaked all over my stuff, I sniffed my bookbag once and nearly puked..

(Please don't laugh at me or anything) To be truthful like the smell of gasoline...
Sorry I meant to put an I before like (typo) laugh out loud

Right. Boys (Little boy) stink badly. Hey, wait a second, Girls smell also badly, but sometimes their smell just make me feel attract...


Offensive Hate how people argue theese days we all are awesome ok?!? Girls or Boys both awesome just stop this war or Canada or were ever you live will be a wasteland! And I don't want Canada to be a wasteland SO STOP THIS WAR!

34Rotten Meat
Today on my lunch break I went to open a pack of tuna in my car. It was straight up rotten and I almost threw up. Luckily my work where I bought it took responsibility for selling me the nasty food and had someone from maintenance spray my car with odoban.
My Dog dug up a very, very, very old peice of meat from the backyard one day and it dropped me to my knees, the amount of flys on it was ridicoulous. Even my neighbour could smell it from his, and that's saying something because I live on a large property. Even my dog thought it was too much and just left it there.


ya know they smell all sweaty and like dirt even wosre if they work in te sun all day

36Old Milk

the title says it all..

especially when the word "chunky" is used.

37Cat Pee
Worst smell on this earth.
Oh jeez. This is still in my grandmas house. She has no cats now
. Smell lasts forever

Urine in itself doesn't have a strong smell. A fresh pee never smells badly. But if you keep it standing, the urea in it decomposes to ammonia gas, which is the real cause of foul smelling standing urine.


It's the water or juice or whatever you drank after 6 hours!
Urine at 57?!?! Bleeurgh!


39Dog Vomit

40Underwear Removed After 1 Week
I knew this one guy that took off his underwear after 2 weeks and he sniffed it he vomited
Smell from the underwear of a guy after two weeks may be crazy. one may even understand if it is only for a day. If it is for a girl, even an entire day, the smell might be awful, talkless of a whole week.

41Wet Rotten Potatos

Was it Widnes by any chance? Laugh out loud!

50Hot Cheese

My friend doesn't brush her teeth well and then it smells really bad and seldom forgets to brush and I barfed once just hearing her laugh, plus she's a girl and that is so embarrassing cause girls are supposed to be the unique people but guess not.
To the person below me, do you even know what unique means?
It means different or you stand out from others

65Sour Cream and Chives Pringles
