Which honeysuckles are the pretties/most scented?

Would like to plant some honeysuckles to cover some high trellus, but am wary about which ones to get, in our last garden they got very woody which looks quite ugly (cannot remember which variety/ies we had).
Any ideas on which are the least woody and smell good too?
TIA

oh I've been thinking of getting a honeysuckle too as both DS's adore the smell. Not any help to you but I will bump anyway!

Thanks MrsW, am still hoping for some inspiration!
Have done some on line research but some personal recommendations are always nice...

I think I have this one and it blooming at the moment and smells heavenly in the evening. I've had it in a couple of years and it doesn't seem to be particularly woody.

Thanks for that sophierosie, that one is on my list of possibles, so am glad to hear it's not too woody.

The most scented one is the lonicera japonica 'Halliana' which smells lovely. Has a tendency to get mildew though.

Thanks frogs will look at that one too.
