In my opinion this distinction has to go to Bert: the chimney sweep from Mary Poppin stories.
At the end of the American Civil War may hobos roamed the countryside. One was the Leather man. he never bathed and you could apparently smell him coming from a mile away as he never bathed or changed his leather outfit. Monks in the middle ages were also credited with a lack of hygiene. A truly "holy" monk could have an "odor of sanctity" that was noticeable a mile away.
