It's a very coarse weed and will grow much higher yet. You see it in very rough places like around old building sites although we have it in the corner of our adjacent field germinating in the tilled soil.
I did not know it was called mugwort but would have said from general experience that it was an artemesia or close relative. It normally does have a characteristic smell but this is not compulsory.
I googled mugwort and the picture at the top was a dead ringer for the one in your picture.
