Dyer’s greenweed

The clue’s in the name: this plant’s more widely used to dye clothing. (It’s also used in folk medicine.) With golden yellow pea-like flowers, the short, bushy shrub Genista tinctoria (which is a member of the broom family) flourishes in dry uplands, in the US.  What does it smell of, in a fragrance? It’s dry, cool and bracken-like, adding a green feel to a scent.
