Virginal does have a very good scent Thrify mama.  I too have Belle Etoile and it is highly fragrant.

I have to confess, were I to plant another philadelphus I would plant Virginal.  Its flowers are so much bigger and the scent is equally as good.

I suspect you have a seedling or another variety.  Not all are scented...I understand one or two new varieties are bred for their flowers and not scent
