A Clerodendrum, I think. Maybe C. Trichotomum. Some have a sweet smell, at least one Clerodendrum is an invasive plant in my region, but I can't remember which one.

Here is a link that might be useful: Clerodendrum

Leycesteria formosa ?

RE: Mystery Bush

Leycesteria formosa - absolutely definitely. Common self seeder over here. The purple berries smell of burnt caramel.

RE: Mystery Bush

Floral's got it!! Often goes by common name of Himalayan honeysuckle or pheasant berry. Much loved by hummingbirds.

RE: Mystery Bush

Well - Carol23 got it first. But maybe she just doesn't see as much of it as I do hence the?

Pheasant Berry because it was planted in game coverts as food. Sadly no humming birds to enjoy it here.
