This shrub just bloomed with an intense fragrance. The leaves remain green all year. Tucked in a corner, it gets fir filtered light from 10 am and full sun starting at 5 pm. The flowers look like a slow-motion picture of a water droplet splash.
It is not an itea & someone suggested white butterfly bush but the flowers are quite different.

Maybe a Cherry Laurel
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

"The flowers look like a slow-motion picture of a water droplet splash". Lovey dubby

Yes, Cherry Laurel. The crushed leaves will smell like almonds.
