Please help me identify this tree. With Pictures

I've been having a really hard time identifying this tree that i saw, i've seen it as a tree and a shrub, but i know its definetly same.

here's the tree itself

it has very coarse bark, on the tree, not so much on the shrub

it has a compound leaf of 7 (mostly)

and the leaves are directly across from each other

Also from touching the leaves they left a scent on my hands which reminded me of eucalyptus

and it also has a cluster of small purple flowers

which turn into cluster of seeds (the seeds aren't mature in this picture, cuz this picture was taken from the shrub, since i couldn't reach ones on the tree)

Anyways, if anyone can help me identify this tree, it would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you in advance!

Perhaps chaste tree, Vitex agnus-castus?
