Geezz Hazel, you sent me on a search now to find the one I have. There are a few different varieties. H. officinalis hyssop is the one I have. It has a slight skunky odor which some people don't like when you press the leaves between your fingers. I don't mind the smell at all. It can also be used in cooking but in very small amounts as it can be overpowering.

The list below is pretty comprehensive for deer resistant plants. Maybe it will help.
