There are dwarf mock orange varieties.  I was tempted myself while back.

Not too hot on roses..sure there will be lots of advice on roses....but in my experience too similar plants together often dont blend.  One will outshine the other.  Decide though what your criteria is....scent, vigour, disease resistance and go for colour contrast or colour complement.
