Pittosporum tobira

Just a gut reaction Martin, but I don't think this is P. tobira. It's a plant I know quite well, it's sometimes seen in gardens on the IOW.It's leaves are a lustrous dark green and glossy but distinctly revolute. The flowers have very strong delicious perfume.
I'm afraid if your specimen is not P. tobira I don't have much idea what it may be but it reminds me of a genus called Myoporum from Australia and New Zealand which I know is sometimes grown a screening plant in warmer European countries.

Thanks, you are right it does

Thanks, you are right it does appear to be a Myoporum.
