Anyone else really hate the smell of Salvia?

I'm normally a big fan of herbs and love smelling the foliage of Monarda, Agastache, various mints, thyme, etc., but I'm finding that the smell of Salvia nemorosa is really off-putting to me any time I'm working near it or pruning it. This is getting to the point of me wanting to get rid of my Salvia "Blue Hill", since I get nauseated whenever I'm near it as the aroma of stale cat pee wafts into my nasal cavities. And yes, I'm sure it's not from a neighborhood cat peeing on my Salvia!

Am I just crazy, or is anyone else turned off by the scent of Salvia?
