Wouldn't a bay smell of bay?? I agree its most likely Elaeagnus.
Could I just add that if you remove one leaf from a bay tree, crush it in your hand and smell it, you will be in no further doubt. Bay smells like bay, nothing else does.
It is 100% Elaeagnus sp.
Silver dots on back of leaves.fruits etc provide the evidence needed.etc
I don't doubt it is Elaeagnus, my point was that Bay trees have a distinctive smell. 🤷♀️
I’m going to crush a leaf now!
