Thanks for your interesting gardening question. Our research indicates that either you have an unscented strain of Sarcococca, or the plant is growing in shady or cool conditions. Apparently the scent is more detectable when the plant is warm. You may want to make a visit to your local nursery with a stem of the plant. This article may help:
