Probably not Lemon Balm

I've rubbed the leaves as suggested by Roger Gilbert above and there is no scent of lemon. In fact, there is barely any scent at all. I've even consulted other noses.

I've agreed with Wood Sage -

because it looks very like it: but I would have expected you to report a smell. It isn't like culinary sage, being less pleasant; but it should be noticeable.
