Hi! This plant has a very distinct sweet smell that I’ve been trying to track down for years. It also has a strange fruit that upon inspection was purplish and had dried. When I cut it open it was filled with a kind of tiny seed and had a larger seed inside. The stems that the white flowers are on are hairy and the leaves have serrated edges. Please help end my search!

Its a Loquat.
