Help identify a shrub please

Hi all, 

ive come across a shrub in a friend garden and I like the look of it and looking to take some cuttings 

please can anyone advise me or anyone know what kind of shrub this could be 

well my friend has a small shrub in a large pot and it's a pittosporum tobira Nanum... Defiantly 100% as it had info card within the plant it self but the shrub I'm after looks very similar to the pittosporum 

pits shame style leaves and also nearly same colour 

the pittosporum I know is small and compact and very "Bushy" this shrub is in the ground and has larger internodes but leaves  look almost same colour 

there's no Flowers on it at the minute 

I've got a feeling it's another pittosporum or even the same 

it has a scent you can smell when you rub the leaves 

it is a lot larger and more spread out 

please if anyone knows what it is or advise on what it could be that will be most Helpful..'I have permission to take a few cuttings from my friend 

Also would these be semi hardwood cuttings?? 

thank you all for reading and hope someome can help

please find photographs of the shrub IM looking for!!

    Thank you !! 

    Am i right that these shrubs produce fragrant flowers ?? 

    Something like a Jasmine - fragrant flowers in the summer ?

    Yes -  that's the one - it's sometimes known as Mexican Orange blossom because of the perfume
