looks like a type of jasmine? Don't ask me which type tho lol

I don't think it's Jasmine. OP can you take closer photo's of the flowers and leaves/branches? Do the flowers have a perfume? Is it a shrub or a vine (looks shrubby but can't be sure)? How tall is it?

I have 2 kinds of Jasmine, one is star Jasmine and the leaves are that big.

my first thought was jasmina as well, although not star jasmine. ( whoa kenji, thats a lotta pics!) could it be night jasmine? ( where the perfume is strongest at night) we have something similar.

actually upon googling its not night jasmine. however i did learn there are about 200 varieties of jasmind so who knows, it could be.

Definitely a type of privet. A quick search shows that some varieties are declared weeds in some parts of Australia.

Hi OP, another house in my street has that plant - it's perfume is so lovely that I asked them what it was. The lady at the house told me that it was a privet.

But every privet I have ever smelled is not lovely. It smells of old boarding houses and drains.
Does your plant have small black berries after flowering?

Not sure if it's the correct name but I have one we call night-time (or night blooming) Jasmine. The smell is really strong and best at night and early morning.
Grows more like a bush and very very fast. I am forever trimming it back.

Ligustrum or Privet.
ETA: If it is Privet which is a shrub ,rather than a climber like Jasmine, it will have black berries after the flowers.The leaves and berries are poisonous.
The pollen is highly allergenic causing asthma and eczema.

I'm with Balzac, I don't think it's privet.
What a pity the OP had removed the link, now we will never know...

I guess a type of syringa, or lilac, they come in white and smell devine, is it deciduous?
