however it has no fragrance or aroma at all.
so. Of no use whatsoever for cooking. Any ideas, please, anyone

The no flavour no scent "sage".
Wood-sage, Teucrium scorodonia. Not a culinary herb
It's certainly a salvia (sage) but not the normal type sold for culinary use (Salvia officinalis.) However, there are other varieties sold for culinary use and one is a miniature:
Do the leaves have no smell at all when crushed? I wouldn't expect them to smell without crushing.
Nope - no smell at all - not even when crushed. I even tried drying it to see if it would smell "sagey". But I guess it's another plant for the compost bin.
it won't smell like sage whatever you do because the name Wood sage doesn't mean it's sage as in Salvia officinalis. Right family, different genus. This is a wild flower of the UK
