Cestrum Parqui aka Green/Chilean Cestrum

Middle of, VA(Zone 7a)

Since I've had a 'few' jasmines over the years I had to check my journal (mercy, how outdated can one's notes be - sheesh...fixed that) to see if I've ever had one of these. Nope not on 'the list.' Anyone with 'first nose' experience? Wondering if any of you can tell me what the scent compares to. Photo 'borrowed' from internet - read: not mine. Author on Wiki shows name as Asit K. Ghosh Thaumaturgist. To my eyes it looks very similar to Night Blooming Jasmine

I wonder if by chance it is the same person as the name on the picture? COuld be? Maybe? And he could tell you more? We might hope?
Am I stuck? In question mode?
