  • $\begingroup$ not really on topic, but I saw this question on "hot network questions" while listening to Roses, by OutKast ... "See that roses really smell like poo-poo-oo" $\endgroup$ – sch Nov 27 '17 at 13:10

I'm going to guess..

Rafflesia arnoldii? (aka corpse flower)

I am the biggest.

it is the biggest flower in the world

I am the rarest.

Not sure about 'rarest' but it is definitely rare, one of the rarest flowers in indonesia (not sure if it exists anywhere else).

I am the strangest.

It's massive and it smells like corpses. Sounds like a strange flower to me.

I am bodiless.

Flowers don't have body, i guess. Heck, it doesnt even look like it has a body/stalk at all - it looks just like a big flower on the ground.

I am smelly.

It's called the corpse flower so that should give an idea on how smelly it is

But beauty.

It is quite the sight to behold.

I would say a dug up and emptied war cemetery

I am the biggest

Lots of soldiers (were there), need lots of ground

I am the strangest

Why does a cemetery have no bodies?

I am bodiless

The bodies are gone

I am the rarest

Who digs up a military cemetery?

I am smelly

The smell of dug up rotting flesh

I am beautiful

Generally the grounds of graveyards are well kept and organised, so if a professional did this he/she/they would probably put it back in its original state, just without the bodies
