I agree that the odor isn't that bad.  Several flowered this year and we 
hardly noticed them.  It isn't a constant odor and, at least with the clones 
have, you need to be quite close to smell them.  Amorphophallus paeoniifolius 
another story.  We had neighbors two houses down tracking down the odor.
The first time my paeonifolius bloomed our neighbor across the street came 
over and asked if I thought the sewer had backed up.
And a few years later I heard a terrible noise on the metal roof of our porch 
and when I went out to look there was a flock of vultures.  The odor had even 
fooled them.
I definitely would not want a paeonifolius in the house at blooming time.
