Northern California. It is a shrub. White-yellow flowers. Fragrant.

Clustered flower, clustered leaves?!

Is it growing in a garden or in the wild?

It reminds me of Pittosporum tobira:

It looks like Japanese Pittosporum (Pittosporum tobira) to me also:

Definitely Pittosporum tobira.
They're blooming down this way right now, too, and smell delightful.
