In brief: A few possibilities
Of course stools or gas often have an unpleasant odor, but one that is recognized as normal.
Unusually or distinctly bad odors may come from simple diet changes, but may also be due to illnesses. For example, stool or gas can have bad odors from blood or poorly digested foods as with crohn's disease (inflammatory condition), celiac disease (gluten intolerance), pancreatitis, or some infections.
