“tes chaussettes de sport qui sentent mauvais”

Should “tes chaussettes de sport qui sentent mauvais” be “tes chaussettes de sport qui sentent mauvaises” so that “mauvaises” agrees with “chaussettes”?

Maarten K.C1 Kwiziq Q&A super contributor Correct answer

Brian, sentir bon/mauvais are fixed expressions and bon/mauvais are invariable here.
