Fragrant plants

I have grown a Mock Orange and Sweet Box in our front garden specifically for fragrance. Whilst both produce lots of flowers, neither give off the strong scent I expected, I can barely smell them when I go right up to them.

For our back garden, I have bought a jasmine which does seem to smell lovely but will take a while to grow.

I would like to fill our garden with more smaller plants rather than large shrubs that give off scent in the warmer months. We have a east facing garden and alkaline soil with partial shade. I am fairly new gardener and want low maintenhance plants.
