Viburnum Tinus

We have a very large viburnum tinus which exudes the most revolting smell.  We thought it was viburnum beetle, but a professional gardener has had a look at it and says there's no sign of the beetle and the plant is perfectly healthy.  So is it the plant itself that stinks, and if so is there anything we can do about it?

    nope, I'm afraid it just smells, more so after rain I've found. 
    The choices are : live with it or lose it.

    Thank you.  I was afraid that was the case and yes, it is much worse when it's wet!  What a nuisance as it provides valuable screening.
