Visitors to Adelaide Botanic Garden are asked what a corpse flower smells like, after visiting "Ganteng the Titan Arum". Ganteng (reportedly Indonesian for "handsome") bloomed in February. At the moment, you can also watch a live stream of "Sprout", a corpse flower just about to bloom at the Chicago Botanic Garden.

Dreadful, yes. I visited the local arboretum last year to smell a bloom like this one. I got notes of moldy hiking boots over a base of rotting raw chicken.
I have still never smelled one
