Viburnum carlesii vs Vibernum Burwoodii - which would you recommend?

I'm looking to add a showy, fragrant shrub in an area of my small backyard garden. I think I've narrowed it down to Viburnum carlesii or Vibernum Burwoodii. Which would you choose? I'm probably looking at one of the more compact/dwarf cultivars as it is a small area, though I am happy to keep it pruned. One of the more recent cultivars I noticed, Viburnum carlesii 'Spice Island', seemed really attractive for many reasons, including the fact that this variety blooms with its leaves fully expanded as a backdrop. Would love to hear your opinions.
