It doesn´t matter if it stinks. All the matter is if the reaction works  ;D.
But I agree...organosulfur chemistry is a bit painful. I was running reactions with Lawesson´s reagent on a several hundred grams scale last week. My technician who had to conduct the experiments was a bit pissed... 8)

Use mild hydrogenation, azide to amine. Be aware the system you generate will be a redox system, that is the N-oxide can move between the two nitrogen atoms, so you will end up with a mixture of N-oxides
