This morning, Brandi brought up the fact that she doesn't think Johnny Depp smells good. This is based on no facts, no experience, not even apocryphal anecdotal evidence; she just doesn't think he looks like someone who spends a whole lot of time considering his personal hygiene.

It's a fair enough assessment. When you go out of your way to look like Keith Richards, a man who--fairly or not--is fairly frequently compared to an actual corpse, it's probably going to bring into question how seriously you try to avoid smelling like, well, a corpse.

But, then again, the man stars in cologne commercials:

What that commercial is about is a discussion for another day--I don't have a decade to try to figure out what the buffalo and shovel represent--because I have to talk about celebrities who stink.

Look it up and you'll find there's no shortage of stories about celebrities that allegedly smell. Seriously. Here. Here. Here. Here. Here. Even here.

But I'm curious less about who actually smells bad and more about who seems like they smell bad--and good, as well. Some of my picks:

Katy Perry obviously smells like cotton candy and endless joy.

I assume David Bowie exudes the aroma of money and sandalwood.

I'm going to go ahead and--without having actually smelled them--give the Most Improved Odor Award to Jane's Addiction. I mean, really: who would you and your olfactory senses rather be around, these guys:

Capitol Records

Or... these guys.

So, who do you think seems like they smell good? And bad?
