Mint Variety

Hi! I bought a mint plant a few weeks ago. But when my friend saw my newly potted herb friend, she said it wasn't mint. It smelled like mint-y toothpaste, but she said it was different. Now I'm confused. Can you help me identify my plant? Your help is very much appreciated!

It is definitely mint. There are many, many different kinds of mint. She may be used to seeing your typical spearmint. If it looks like mint, and quacks like mint... It must be mint. There are very few plants that produce the same oils that mint does, so you would know if what you had was mint or not.
