Please help me identify this highly fragrant little tree with clusters of yellow flowers growing along the side of a path in Michigan. The smell is overwhelmingly powerful, like Japanese Honeysuckle.

Looks like Buckthorn. Maybe Rhamnus cathartica.

Thank you!!! I am very sorry to find out it is a highly invasive species in our area, and not welcome at all. So sad because it's one of the most beautifully fragrant plants I've come across!
