Do boxwood bushes emit an odor?

Our boxwoods are emitting an odor. Does this happen after trimming or is this normal? Smells similar to cat urine.

Some people say they can smell a urine scent coming from boxwoods. Others don't. Had a friend that couldn't stand them, I've never been able to detect any scent.
