It came in a little trio of plants (succulents). So I'm thinking it may be some sort of succulent but it is quite different than succulents I'm used to seeing.

The stems are woody & the leaves are very fragrant, soft and fuzzy.

Thank you for your help.

Maybe Plectranthus amboinicus (Cuban Oregano)?

It reminds me of Plectranthus also, possibly Vicks Plant (Plectranthus tomentosa)

Vicks Plant looks to me a better choice as the leaves seem too thick for Cuban Oregano

Thank you ladies for your input. After comparing the Vicks plant with the Cuban oregano, I believe it is the Vicks plant.

Ah, finally! I've been trying to find out what this plant is for months. I'm so thankful I found atp.com (=
