My main question is that if you go up close to the bush the scent is weaker and often absent.It is quite strong if you are a short distance, about two, or three meters away from the bush.I have tried this a few times and think that I am correct in this statement.It seems illogical, but hopefully you have an explanation.
This is why we 'get used to' or 'acclimatise' to smells (particularly useful in farm yards and hospitals !) and eventually stop noticing them. The purpose of this dynamic response is that it prevents sensory overload, and enables you to continue to perceive new information.
Some speices of Phyllanthus are pollinated by moths, but I wouldn't like to say this particular one is.
