Where is the scent of curry powder coming from??


Where is the scent of curry powder coming from?? (Helichrysum italicum (Curry Plant))

It took me ages to track down the scent to this plant. I have had it for years and never really paid it much attention. The leaves smell like mild curry and the flowers like a sweet curry. I moved it here beside the steps last spring. I must have had a cold when I moved it lol...They are making me hungry...
