its a very popular theme in givenchy spring summer 2012 collection
even the korean drama currently airing in local tv "fashion king" has the actor wearing one Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Riccardo Tisci is a genius
Personally, I'm waiting for the Anthurium theme
What did you think?
I saw/smelt it at Kew Gardens a few years ago. Didn't think it was all that bad, though when you get close it's pretty strong. I've smelt a lot worse things though (including genuine rotting human flesh). From further away, I thought the flower has a slightly sweet/cloying aroma.
It's interesting how scents vary depending on distance (i.e. concentration of the aroma molecules). Lots of things that smell vile up close are much nicer from a distance (horse manure is another substance to exhibit this effect).
(To be precise, I went to to see the same species as you did in your link. The one in the photo is something different, although has the same colloquial name of corpse flower and also apparently stinks...
EDIT: given the floral scented confusion, you could even say it's a case of "a rose by any other name..." Yeah, yeah, stop groaning, when am I ever going to get the chance to use such a wonderfully appropriate pun?).
