Cats must have sprayed their scent on. Blearugh.

Basil smells great usually.

I hope not, I gave it to DS for his lunch grin.

My Dad always says basil smells like this and I never thought it did but now I see what he means. Maybe it is a genetic smelling type thing.

Apparently I'm not going completely mad, just googled and found this!
