Durians are fruits that smell like turpentine, onions, and a used sock

Forbidden in many means of transportation and hotels in Malaysia and Singapore, the durian is a typical fruit of Southeast Asia. Some consider it delicious while others think it tastes horrible.

What’s clear is that its smell is not pleasant at all; it is known as the stinkiest fruit in the world. According to the Smithsonian, it smells like “turpentine and onions, garnished with a gym sock”. Would you try it?
