    Does it snell of lemon? Looks like lemon balm - Melissa Officinalis.

    I think it looks more like Hedge Woundwort

    Sorry, I'm not @nutcutlet - but I'm pretty sure it's a member of the deadnettle family.  Could well be hedge woundwort, as Dove suggests.  They are pretty but invasive in open ground.
