This is one of the most fragrant plants I ever smelled. It gives off fragrance night and day, and the helpers at the nursery had no clue what if was..It was about a 5feet tall tree looking plant and this is a cutting.

It is kept in a cool room humid room which it's does well in as the sweet olives do.

It has hundreds of blooms on each stem and branches..

Mike,
That is a variety of Daphne.
There are about 500 kinds of Daphnes, but it looks to me that you have the evergreen winter blooming one.
Leave it in the water even if all the leaves fall off.
It will root, might take a while, but it is worth the wait.
Good Luck!
Happy New Year to you too!

Looks like a hoya to me. Maybe Hoya Australis or related variety?

I am curious to know what everyone else thinks.
