Help with bush ID

Trying to identify this bush. Very fregrant flowers from mid to late May.Located NE PA.Looks Willowish except flowers do not form candle, just small bunches among leaves which have silvery undersides.These are wild and very noticable because of the silvery/white look to the bush (<10 ft) and when flowering the smell is very stong(sweet).
Thank you http://i298.photobucket.com/albums/m...4/plant003.jpg

That is Elaeagnus, AKA Autumn Olive. It is considered invasive in my area. It does smell wonderful while in bloom. A lot of people planted it originally for wildlife (the fruit), but it spreads like crazy and soon takes over.
