Help With Perennial Name

Maybe some of our Blog friends can help me identify this beautiful, vanilla smelling-like white plant. It was present when we moved in to our last home and I made sure to take some with us when we moved 2 yrs ago. It is slowly making its presence in the garden with an increasing night time smell.
It has these multi-small flower burst heads on long stems. The leaves are lower on the stem and are almost fern like. It flowers at this time of year, the fragrance is more noticeable at night and you can certainly have a bouquet of it if brought into the home.

I took these pictures earlier in the week, and now with the persistent rain am sure most of the flowers will be gone. Anyone might know the name of this plant?

Your plant looks like Sweet Cicely or Myrris odorata. Many people think it smells like licorice.

Hey Jude! I do think you are right! And when I rethink the smell, yes more like licorice. Sad to say with all the rain lately the blooms are done.

Two other possibilities might be a member of the anthriscus or angelica families?

Do you think it might be valeriana officinalis, also known as garden heliotrope?
