what (hanging) plant in (half)shade

I think the Begonias and Fuchsias already mentioned are excellent
suggestions for your climate and half-shade, and I can add one more:
Mimulus x tigrinus. You can grow them from seed, so they are inexpensive.
Mimulus x tigrinus is an annual so unlike the other 2 you do not have to
worry about overwintering it.

None of these suggestions are fragrant. If you have your heart set on
fragrance, see if you can find a plant called Trachelospermum jasminioides.
It is grown in England and probably in southern Europe, but you might be
able to find one locally. It is a very tolerant plant. It might not be hardy
in the Netherlands but one of its relations should be quite so: T.
asiaticum. These are climbers, by the way, but they can be kept fairly
bushy, especially T. asiaticum.
