I think it needs to have more flowers for the scent to waft. Mine is 6 feet and at night you can't miss the smell from far..

Re,my101

You sent me a message through gardenweb in a manner that I cannot reply. The question "I am very interested in growing citrus trees . Please let me know would you like to trade cuttings for my cestrum nocturnum(night blooming jasmine) cutting . You can smell fragrance with in few feet
Thank you

The trees I have are from seed and many years from fruiting maturity. My plants are too small to take cuttings from without damage to the plants.

I wish you luck in finding what you want. Growing from seed is an option. rooting cuttings is exceedingly difficult
