This should do the trick:
Stink Bombs

The cost is only $6.00 for 36 vials of really stinky stuff.

Let me know if there's anything else you need on this.

Most of the mercaptans smell perfectly awful. Skunk smell is butyl
seleno mercaptan: C4H9SeH. I have no idea what it costs. Ethyl
mercaptan is horrible enough, said to smell like rotting cabbage.

There is a broad leaf plant that smells somewhat like a skunk when the
leaves are crushed. They grow wild in swampy areas in Western New York
State and likely else where. It is called skunk cabbage.  Neil

Sigma aldrich has many thiols:

Ethyl mercaptan is $13.00 for 25 ml

That will last a long time. E.g. a spill of that chemical in our
university recently resulted in a two building evacuation. The spill
was probably less than 5 ml.

Octane thiol also reeks, and is $22.50 for for 250 ml

you could also consider the ammonium sulfide stink bomb
