Maybe Osmanthus x burkwoodii http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/80790/

Delhi, India

Thanks Growin for suggestion. It, however, lacks the slender pedicel of both Osmanthus burkwoodii or even O. fragrans, has apparantly longer and broader corolla tube and consistently 5-corolla lobes.

I'd imagine it's related, though.

Bristol, United Kingdom

Osmarea burkwoodii?

Delhi, India

My other web forum suggests Acokanthera oblongifolia (syn: Casissa oblongifolia). Looks very close

Could be. Your photo didn't show the blooms open as much as google images.
