What does sage smell like?

Answer

The culinary herb known as sage carries an aromatic, pungent scent. The camphor, diterpene bitters and other chemical components of the plant account for its strong aroma.

The earthy, herbaceous scent of sage coupled with the plant's soft yet savory flavor, makes it a popular choice in seasoning holiday meals and comfort foods like sausage or stuffing. Its flavor is sometimes described as lemony, particularly when used alongside herbs such as rosemary and thyme.

In addition to cooking, the evergreen shrub is popularly utilized in candles and teas for its warm, woody scent and flavor. Sage is also used as an ornamental plant in gardens.
