    Looks like Chinonanthus virginicus (Fringe tree or Grandsir-graybeard). They are natives, but have been so heavily harvested that they are not terribly common these days.

    Grancy Greybeard or Chioanthus virginicus.
    Very fragrant, but doesn’t bloom long–about two weeks.

    Yes, fringe tree. We purchased one two years ago at a local garden center in Virginia (Meadow Farms) after I saw it on the roadside in GA during a business trip. It bloomed in late spring with a scent similar to honeysuckle.
