This may be a stupid question but hear me out lol. What time of day did you smell them? I have a theory going that they are fragrant at certain times and not others. That is what mine does.
I had one from the new strain that was never fragrant, not in the morning, in the afternoon, at night, on sunny days, on rainy days, etc.
from asking around it seems that this was on par, although some do seem to retain fragrance. would be interesting for those who have them to see if it is the same scent as the old strain. note that the old strain came from basically one single plant, which genetically may be significantly different from the plants they found again in the wild. in fact, the two strains vary greatly in terms of plant size and if you cross the two strains, you get a lot of hybrid vigor.
what is remarkable is that the new strain looks so similar to the selfed/inbred old strain.
