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?
Posted 26 November 2012 - 12:53 PM
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...
