    Is there an idiomatic equivalent?

    The literal sounds funny. Ella cree que su kaka no huele.

    uno igual de vulgar, y con un sentido similar:
    "cree que sus pedos huelen a rosas"

    In Chile, some people can say "Igual te tirai los peos hediondos" (And, at the end, you also fart stinky". or "Igual te cagai hediondo".

    This in a popular environment and in a vulgar o really familiar situation.

    Me gusta la expresión de Matias L.
    En Venezuela no tenemos una expresión equivalente, que yo recuerde.
    Me gustaría agregar que en lo que dice ditofer, las palabras tirai y cagai no existen, son deformaciones de tirar y cagar. Tirai y cagai son la forma coloquial de decirlas en Chile, pero no en todos los paises latinoamericanos.

    Oh, yes, you are right. "tirai" and "cagai" are the way we say "tiras" and "cagas". But, I don't agree it is a deformation. It is just the way we speak in Chile.

    Con el mismo sentido tenemos otra en castellano que a mi me parece muy simpática "Se cree que mea colonia"

    correct form of this idiom is: He/She thinks her shit don't stink...

    I agree with babelink...

    He thinks his shit don't stink!

    it's intentionally grammatically incorrect for effect... for sound value.
