You have posted the name Russula which is fine but laurocerasi is a species which is not capitalized and is not the author of the species. Beyond that this mushroom’s name has been changed to Russula grata Britzelm. Russula fragrantissima (if different) is a look alike. They tend to smell of almond extract or cherries when young and fresh.
