Can anyone help me with this... have been told is possibly a herb and has quite a strong fragrance (quite a peppery smell) but have no idea what it is....

Hi @Orangeleafkate

It might be a yarrow (Achillea) or a chamomile (Anthemis) Do you have a picture of the flowers?

I had to look up Epazote, even though I live in a neighborhood where it is popular. Those leaves don't look quite right to me, and it says it smells like gasoline. No accounting for taste.

Bloom where you are planted.

Looks similar to a Pelargonium citrosum - commonly called the citronella plant, mosquito plant geranium, and citrosa geranium.

It looks like Russian Sage (Perovskia atriplicifolia)
There are some good close-up photos here for comparison.

Did you find this in the London area?
