Rafflesia arnoldii produces the largest individual flower in the world. You might be impressed by one, until you got close enough to take a whiff. The nickname it shares with titan arum, corpse flower, tells you everything you need to know about its aroma. As with several other foul-smelling blooms, the scent is designed to smell like rotting carrion to attract flies.9 of the worst smelling flowers in the world
