This looks like sweet autumn clematis, Clematis terniflora. It has sweet smelling flowers but grows aggressively. It is labeled invasive in some areas. Here is a good article on the vine. If you decide to remove it, dig out as much of the root system as possible, watch for re-sprouting and new plants popping up from seeds. http://www.missouribotanicalgarden.org/PlantFinder/PlantFinderDetails.aspx?kempercode=a300
