Code smell

Code smell is a term used to refer to a piece of code that lacks structural quality; however, the code may be functionally correct. Code smells violate SOLID design principles, hence they must be taken seriously, as the code that is not well written leads to heavy maintenance cost in the long run. However, code smells can be refactored into clean code.
