Arum dioscorides - gross and disgusting, like a compost heap that's been 
overwatered and gone into anaerobic decomposition

Fritillaria camschatcensis - skunky; a real stinker. Enter a pot of this in 
flower at a show and the entire hall will be scented with its effluvium.

Lilium martagon - oh, so pretty, but with a vile, musty, unpleasant scent that 
precludes using the flowers to decorate the house.
