Found in Portland Oregon. It came from a tree about 10-12 ft tall. It smells very sweet, almost like Jasmine.
Does anyone know what it is?

It isn't a tree - if it was in a tree, it's because it climbed up into it, as it often does if it can. It's a climbing plant called Clematis vitalba, common name Traveller's Joy. Many other forms of clematis are incorrectly called Traveller's Joy, so best to stick to the botanical/Latin name of C. vitalba if you need to tell anyone precisely what it is. Grows wild in the UK and Europe, often found in hedgerows; I'm not sure whether it grows wild in parts of America too, or whether this one has been deliberately planted. Flowers July through to September and is, indeed, fragrant.
