Q: What is the difference between It stinks and It smells bad ?
A: There isn’t really a difference. Um, I don’t know how to explain this.

example sentences:•I hate this perfume. It smells bad.
(You don’t like the way it smells.)

•Do you smell that? It stinks!! Is that the sewage?!? (The sewage stinks bad.)

(But you could also use them interchangeably.🤷🏼‍♀️)

Stinks, I guess, is stronger than smells. Smell is how something smells to you. It could be good. Stinks never is good. Like, you can say, “That perfume smells good”, but you can’t say “That perfume stinks good.”

A: The two words are synonyms. So they mean exactly the same and interchange.

E.g. The room stank (past tense of stink) of thinner after renovation.
It can be written as "The room reeked of thinner after renovation."

Does this sound natural?

"She rubs people the wrong way because she's always talking behind others' backs."
