The Putrid Scent is an accessory that is dropped from the Corrupt Mimic. When equipped, the player is less likely to be targeted by monsters AND gives the player 5% increased damage and critical strike chance. It resembles Vile Powder with moss on the bottom of it.

The likelihood of being targeted being of most benefit for non-"Tank" players in multiplayer, combined with the availability of Emblems (which confer greater bonuses to damage and attack speed) being prior to when a player is likely to obtain this item, its usefulness is almost exclusive to multiplayer Mages (stacks with damage and critical bonuses) and Rangers (stacks with cloaking, damage, and critical bonuses). Summoners may benefit from the minimized chance to target, but summoned creatures cannot critically hit.
