Hi,

This plant was seen at Panaroma Point in Matheran, Maharashtra. It was growing near the edge on the left side near Panaroma Point.
The flowers had a fragrance reminiscent of Mango blossoms. The photo was taken on 15 August 2010.
Any help in its identification is appreciated.

Thank you everyone :)
Strangely there was only one specimen of this tree in that location.
The fragrance was heavenly, that's how we were able to find the plant.
