Do you recognise this?

Hello, 
I've just posted for the first time and got some great answers, so here's another question. What's this, please? We planted it ages ago, lost the label and can't remember what it is. It's evergreen is in flower now, though often flowers earlier in the year, small white then pink flowers, about three/four feet tall now, it's delicate and wispy with thin upward branches, but tough as old boots, is in flower for ages and we love it. An app suggested pink confetti but we're not so sure.
Cheers!

    Also known as Breath of Heaven but no idea if that relates to its perfume.
