Can someone ID this shrub please?

From a distance I thought this was a tree heather, but the flowers are definitely not heather-like.  It's about a metre tall, growing through weeds in an overgrown garden in a village in County Clare, in the west of Ireland.  Soil in the area is mixed - not very acid, probably neutral or alkaline.  Little flowers are sweetly scented.
Any ideas, please?  Photographed a few days ago.
