There are also more than a few species in the Privet clan. You may or may not have Ligustrum sinense
. In northeast US (you don't say where) you might also experience Ligustrum amurense, Ligustrum obtusilobum, Ligustrum ovalifolium,
and Ligustrum vulgare
As noted: fragrance is in the nose of the beholder. I love garlic and all that it brings to food and life. Others, not so much. Their loss. Privet flower fragrance produces quite a wide range of opinions, and you've experienced the gamut here.
As you have only given us two closeups of part of the plant, I won't chase the ID any further. I believe it to fit in the Ligustrum
genus. You could bemuse us with pictures of the WHOLE plant, and then further images of branches, stems, flowers, fruit, leaves (upper and underside), lenticels, petioles, stipules, glands, and degree of hairiness.
