Hi mounier, and welcome to garden.org. It would help a lot if you could please let us know your location, or where in the world you saw this plant. You can enter your city/state/country to your personal profile so that it will appear in the upper right corner of your posts. It's always helpful, especially when trying to identify or recommend plants.

Perhaps @bonitin will have an idea of your plant's name.

Mounir, can you tell us if this plant is growing wild or is it being cultivated in a garden?

It looks a bit like Daphne laureola. Maybe a relative?

My first thought also was that it reminds me of Daphne.

It does look like a daphne but don't most daphnes have four petals? I've been trying to see the number of petals on the ID plant but on one at least it looks like more than four. Can't be sure though. It would help narrow down the options.

sooby, you are right ... looking closely at the posters photo, the bloom appears to have maybe 5 petals.

It bears some resemblance to Osmanthus.

Look at Osmanthus heterophyllus 'Myrtifolius'

I looked at Osmanthus as well, but it too has four petals.

It's difficult to tell how many petals there are but there could be 5. I thought I could see some purple in the throat, the stamens look to be purple and the petals maybe have purple spots?

Yes, I thought I could see that too, and better in your clip. Nearest I've come so far is Myoporum, this flower below is Myoporum laetum. The leaves don't look an exact match though:

Edited to add cute pup Lin! Our latest addition here is a golden retriever puppy but he's a "teenager" now.

Myoporum tenuifolium does look like this plant, the seed pods forming can be seen and they match too!

The fifth picture from the right on that page has leaves that look closest of the myoporums I've looked at.
