Rotten liquified potato is the most noisome odor ever conceived....hands down!
Noisome, malodorous, fetid, rancid, putrid, noxious, stinky, musty, frowsty, reeking, fusty, rank, funky.....nasty stench.

I've got to second diesel. We use it up here to freeze protect oil wells and whenever we pull tools and there is a bit of trapped pressure, the people closest to the toolstring (AKA me, in many cases) usually get a good dousing. Sucks even more when it happens the day you're flying home and don't have time to take a shower before you have to catch the plane...
