Plant I own but can't identify

Any help identifying this thing would be greatly appreciated. I'm at a loss. I think it might be some sort of herb that can be eaten, but i'm not sure.

It's Plectranthus montanus.

Wow thanks for the quick response. Know anything about this particular subspecies of Plectranthus? Or am I already pushing the bounds of your knowledge. I've looked all over the internet and it's baffling how little there is written about it.

Could it be this? Plectranthus amboinicus ..... Cuban Oregano?

I grow Cuban oregano but the leaves are huge compared to the one in the photo.
You should be able to tell by the smell....

How would you describe the smell? This plant smells too, it's faint but somewhat sweet.

It doesn't look like Plectranthus montanus when I google image that.
