Several names for this: Curry Plant, Herb of St. John, Immortelle (which you might know from the L’Occitane skincare range) – and botanically, Helichrysum augustifolium.  All refer to small herb, which somehow manages to thrive in the most inhospitable, rocky, sun-baked zones in southern Europe.  Amazingly, this grey-leafed toughie gives off a lovely, almost straw-like sweet scent, with hints of honey, tea, rose and chamomile – giving a flowery sweetness to perfumes…
