I think Pittosporum and Daphniphyllum have whorled leaf arrangement whereas this one is alternate. Nice glossy leaves though.

Possibly one of the oaks in Quercus subgenus Cyclobalanopsis? Really needs flowers or fruit for ID though, there's so many warm-temperate / subtropical evergreen broadleaves with this basic leaf shape.

I think it does resemble P. eugenioides?

I thought "maire" when I saw it, except I could not remember the Latin - Growin got it: Nestegis. I can't see if the foliage has an opposite leaf arrangement - does it?

The leaves glossy enough to be Pseudowintera axillaris?

Thank you all for your interest.
But it doesn't seem like any of these either.

Can you crush a leaf to see if there is an aroma?

It kinda does. There sure is a wide variation in leaf in google images for that plant.

I was thinking it might be Barbusano (Appolonias sp.) but that was just a throw in guess. I can't remember if it was that glossy.

Barbusano's leaves similar - a good throw in!
My 'Titoko?' has really shiny 'new green' leaves.
