|Doesn't it look like a young fuchsia? More so than the basil it's named for, I think.|
My best smelling mint is my strawberry mint. It isn't the nicest, lushest plant (I really should look into this), but it is incredibly fragrant, just like strawberries! I trimmed off a few sprigs recently and rooted them in a jar of water. Mint grows super quickly and easily this way. Yesterday I moved the water babies into a starter container.
