I love the look of boxwoods, but is there a variety that doesn't smell like a cat box?

I'm afraid all boxwood cultivars have the same cat urine odor. It's especially haunting in the hot summer weather. It's okay out in the garden, but don't plant them near windows or doors or you'll wish you hadn't. Wish I had better news for you!
