Probably V. bodnantense..

...but I won't "poach" the ID!

Lovely scent on a winter's morning.

V. bodnantense

Wondered about that but felt the the flowers seemed too white. As in one of my recent posts, ID to genus may well be sufficient.

Well, in that case:

It's definitely Viburnum!! (edited for speeling erorr)

The flower colour does vary between being pinker and being whiter - each individual flower tends to start out pinkish, and fade to white.
