smelly boxwoods?

smelly boxwoods?

Hello! I'm new to the community :) I purchased my first house and will shortly be moving into it. I live in Zone 6 (Southeastern PA). There are currently three half dead Cedar trees planted directly outside my front picture window. I would like to plant boxwoods that I would trim into a rectangular shape. I've been told that boxwoods have a tendency to stink pretty bad, so I'm wondering if there are other evergreen bushes that would survive Zone 6 that I can shape. What sort of options do I have if I don't go with boxwoods? Someone suggested Mountain Laurels?
