Mint is not a kind of perfume

Question

Is mint considered to be one of the kinds of perfume which is not allowed in ihraam?

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

Mint is not a kind of perfume, rather it is more like Persian basil, and Persian basil resembles yashmoom. Even though it has a pleasant fragrance it is not a kind of perfume, unlike the well known kind of basil which is a perfume whether it is fresh or dry.
