Tree with small very fragrant white flowers

Please help me identify this tree. The flowers are in long clusters, unfortunately I don't have any photos of them. The photo is a tree at our previous home, it was third generation of a tree that was at my wife's childhood home. It was grown from a branch that fell off the second generation tree at her sister's house - it stuck in the ground and just started growing. We cut a branch off the original tree last fall (the house was vacant at the time) and put it in a bucket of soil. It is starting to produce leaves but we would like to find one that is a little further along. We've been to a few nurseries but haven't found anything even close. We are in the Tacoma, WA area. I was going to include more photos, but apparently you can only upload one. Thanks.

The photo isn't working. And without a picture, who knows?

Perhaps one of the locusts: honey locust or black locust.

Thanks for the response, lazygardens. Not sure why the picture didn't post, it was in the preview. I'll try again (I'm new to the site).

Looks like some type of Privet
