This is a very large bush with yellow flowers with a sweet smell. It looks like a member of the Holly Family. Do you know what it is?

    Is it a bay (Laurus nobilis) in flower?

    I think it is a Sweet Olive or Fragrant Tea Olive (Osmanthus fragrans)shrub. It is a lovely shrub.

    It is a Fragrant Tea Olive (Osmanthus fragrans). The scent of those tiny, inconspicuous flowers drifts great distances. It blooms heavily a couple of times a year and sporadically throughout the growing season. Enjoy!
