Ageratina altissima/White Snakeroot, I think.

Maybe white snakeroot?

White Snakeroot (Ageratina altissima)

I can't recall if algeratina has a smell...

Eupatoriums are also in bloom now, and they all smell nice.

I agree, it sure looks like White Snakeroot (Eupatorium is a synonym) and this page says the blooms are often fragrant: https://www.illinoiswildflower...
