Ask a Question forum: Japanese Rose Mint

I've been a fan of mints for several years, and I often do research on new and rare varieties. A few days ago, researching on "Todds Mitcham", I found a very strange mint cultivar called "Rose Mint", achieved by gamma irradiation. They say that their essential oils are similar to those found in roses.
However, I have not found more information about it. I have only been able to verify its existence in an ebook titled "Applied Mutation Breeding for Vegetatively Propagated Crops" (By C. Broertjes and AM van Harten) and in the Mutant Variety Database. Does anyone have more information about it?

Thanks in advance

Since it would cost me almost $300 to buy the e-book to read about it...sorry, I have no information about the plant.
