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
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.


The only thing worse than a morgue I've smelled was a burt dead 8 year old. Prolly because your brain associates it.
[Newest]I think the same thing. I hate it.

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


Talk about the worst smells ever... Just the smell of it makes me gag.


[Newest]I once put my hand under the sofa to reach the ball only to realise that my cousin sister had vomited there.

3Raw Sewage
I hate vomit, barf, throw up, spewing, and blowing chunks. I will scream if I am 6 feet or closer to
Someone who feels sick or throws up. And I feel sick the whole day after that.
: )

Guys, feel pity for the people who go into manholes to maintain the sewage system.


I hate the smell of sewage. And I agree with you.

I love the smell of skunk! It's a wonderful smell!
Skunks got one HORRID smell. Laugh out loud
I think this is really gross, but I know how it smells because my dog chases them and ends up with tomato juice instead of a bath
[Newest]I hate skunk and the smell. it, s so terrible

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.
[Newest]I am not a girly girl. And your right. We do smell terrible

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


My bro vomited because of the smell And that didn't smell any thing like it por! Mmm...
[Newest]I hate the smell. I always smell it at my house

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


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


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.


[Newest]My dog does the worst farts and their so quiet

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!


[Newest]Mines is unique. It smells like old noodles and sweat sauce. I can tolerate it for a few days.


In yo face! HAHA
Farts in yo face are so funny and hysterical, but it smells SO bad!
When someone farts, everyone blames it on me and I'm
not gassy at all. Dorks.


I thro-up or make people throw-up every time I fart or somone else farts, every time.


[Newest]The silent ones are real bad

10Egg Farts
What do you mean taste? Why are you tasting your dogs farts?
These actually taste of Egg. ROTTEN EGG!

The Contenders

11Cat Poo
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!
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
You can never walk in the house and not smell this awful stink from this cat.
[Newest]Cat poo smells awful

12Garlic Breath in an Over Populated Bus
Koreans in the morning that have kim chee breath. It's the worst. Is rather smell poop.

13Morning 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
Mines are bad, but so are my brother's.


I think yes because my friend Emily's breath is nastyyy!

I feel for the cartoon characters! Most of them are shoved into the dumpster!


15Dog 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.


Eww the people that live near me leave dog poo all over the sidewalk and whenever I walk past it I almost puke which is also a vile smell!

16Animal Feces
Dead bodies, badly digested then shat out. Hyena poo makes you want to drown yourself in a lake of bleach, if you survive nearly retching and gagging yourself inside out.

17Cold Clothing

18Human Poop
Disgusting, it's the food you ate after 6 or 7 hours!
So true forehad reeks of this

I would rather sleep with a skunk then take out the garbage
That needs to go to the dump or else the house would Stink!

20Fat Man Poo
WHOA. Smells worse then a dead soggy panda in a sulfur pond with old people (who are especially stinky) in it.
Its gross its like colorful diarrhea mixed with vomit and everything else on this list its smells like my little sister or my older bro clone
Ka blam smelly toilet

21Dirty Diapers

22Natural Gas

23Dead Animal

24Stagnant Water

25Dishwasher Detergent

This is horrible!

27Wet 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!
I absolutely hate the wet dog smell it is one of the smells that will gag me.

28Rotten Milk
Its disgusting, my little brother drinks milk and leaves it or hides it until a few weeks later and its rigt there stinking up the place and I half to wash the cups.
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

30Onion Farts
My onions fart all the time
I don't think onions fart...

31A Corpse
Or in other term, evacuated decomposing human body.



33Dead Worms
Was going to go fishing with my Dad when I was eight. he told me to collect worms that evening as it was raining and the pickings would be good. As it turns out, we never went fishing for some unknown reason and we equally forgot about the 6 or eight dozens of worms I left in a metal bucket behind the house. One day, my father called me over to smell the rotten mess of decomposing worms... I had such a strong Gag reflex, I thought I was going to choke to death then and there! Both my father and I would twitch just thinking about the smell later on. Bet news, a bit of sand coverage made the bucket manageable... which my Dad through in a far away ditch hopefully! Nothing wreaks as bad as dead rotting worms man!

34Burnt Hair
I have 4 sisters and smell it every day

35Indian Curry
I remember when some indian guys came to our school and stayed for a week
Not that bad, but the smell lingers within
What about yourself just wiping with paper your behind and walk all day with dried crust spreading estee lauder of your self.
[Newest]IT MAKES ME WANNA PUKE SO MUCH! Like my ex friend is Indian and she STINKS! I used to gag when I was around her that's why I hate her IT'S DISGUSTING! And when you tell them they smell they never believe you

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!
My brother has a HORRID smell that he leaves like a trail behind him or where he is or where he stood! PU!

37Stink Bomb
I had one of these and...lets just say my brother went mad

38Rotten 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.


39Old Milk
the title says it all..

especially when the word "chunky" is used.

40Mushroom Farm

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

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!
Popcorn smells like urine!

43Underwear Removed After 1 Week
I knew this one guy that took off his underwear after 2 weeks and he sniffed it he vomited

44Cat Pee

I could stand any smell but this


It truly is the worst smell in the world I can't remember it's name. all these other smells are like perfume next to it.

52Dirty Socks
Absolutely... Oh my god it can make you die.

You know the quote: "The stench of pot and body odor was beginning to reach McConnaughey-vian proportions" from American Dad? One time I was in a second hand game store, and it seemed like every customer could have been described using that sentence. Weirdly, I was the only female there. Also the only reason I can't stand the smell is because it was constantly wafting through the paper thin walls of my cheap house from my neighbour's grandson's bedroom all the time.
The worse the smell the better the weed... The bud that smells like a skunk is awesome lol. But it does reek!

71Fox Urine

72Rotten Teeth
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

Aaahhh, but it's a good smell! Real men like this, instant woody, wanna get sloshing in and out of that

76Rafflesia Plant
Aww, the tragic horror! Its smell is 100 times worse than that of Pee.



78Dog Breath
Oh my god, my neighbor's golden doodle barfed on the carpeted stairs once, and I bent down to examine it. I almost barfed too. The smell never came out.
What is it you were hoping to find whilst nosing among the contents?
Never teach a dog how to pant. You'll face the consequences. It's SO stinky. Way stinky than my breath!



Rats are horrible. One of them peed in my house. Luckily, I was about to shift my house at that time. They spread plague.


81Sewage Plant
When we go to San Diego we sometimes drive by a sewage plant. Gosh I can't stand the smell! It's too over powering. So now I want to leave the a/c on circulate and the windows up.

82Sticky Tofu
An Asia food item. Basically fermented and decomposing beancurd. Basically smells like sewage and just imagine the lingering aftertaste in your mouth... Ack...
Ps: I have PET rats (Rosie & Daisy) and they DO NOT STINK! This should be taken off the list! They are the best pets in the whole wide world!



85Stale Beer Breath

86Girls Bathroom
Do girls bathroom smell like poo

87Lobster Carcasses
Have a New England lobster bake and throw the shells in the trash. Come back after a hot summer night and lift the lid. Take a deep sniff and you'll never forget the putrescence. I would rather smell vomit mixed with the juice of a dead rat than smell lobster remains. We throw them in the river so the tide will carry them away.
