A player in my group repeatedly uses "stinking druid" as an epithet, and it inspires me to build such a character for a laugh, but I have no experience with druids. What could I do around that theme, and what should I keep in mind when incorporating those ideas?
I imagine it would be a dwarf, with Wisdom (for spells), Constitution (for combat & to improve a wildshape giant skunk's DC), and Charisma penalty (for flavor). I see there is a Swamp archetype and Decay & Jungle subdomains, but they don't look especially strong. A giant slug looks interesting for an animal companion, but I see that giant skunks aren't available for that (though one can be purchased as a mount).
Suggested spells, besides Nauseating Trail? Better races? Feats/traits, archetypes, anything else?

There's a swarm monger archetype. By the rules a swarm of cats or rats doesn't have any stink-like ability but I think you'd notice when they're nearby, and there's other abilities in the archetype which would definitely smell.
Spit venom, spore burst and invigorating poison could all help in different ways. It's not that great, but the repugnant taste spell is very appropriate.
