I think it may be Philadelphus coronarius. Fragrant white flowers in late Spring appear on growth made the previous season. Could get to a height of 6-8ft. Prune after flowering, taking out growth to ground level to keep the shrub in good shape. Maintain new growth for flowers the following year.

It looks like Forsythia to me.
