It looks like Philadelphus (one of the many plants called Mock Orange) to me. It should be a fairly good-sized shrub and be fragrant. There are many cultivars..
The surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that it has never tried to contact us.

It looks like one of the double-flowered Deutzia cultivars.
I'm not sure which one it is specifically.

I agree, I think it could be Deutzia scabra.

I third the Deutzia, likely D. scabra.
