According to Greek Mythology, Minthe was a beautiful wood nymph who caught the eye of Hades (also known as Pluto). Hades' wife Persephone became enraged with jealousy over her husband's wandering eye and turned Minthe into a crawling plant. Hades, of course, wanted the object of his affection back but couldn't reverse the spell. So he made Minthe smell good so that she would always be noticed and never taken for granted.
