Italian term or phrase: aroma balsamico
Label for a cough syrup. I have used "balsam" on another label to translate similar term. This I cannot figure out.

Oh, I see.

For It. aroma alone, apparently Eng. (UK) flavouring is correct - I didn't know this. See https://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/italian-english...

However, Eng. balsamic aroma seems to be some Eng. idiomatic phrase and not a flavor but a scent. See Aromahead link above, or http://sedonaaromatherapie.com/blog/2014/02/17/five-common-s... or http://roiltreasures.com/myrrh-essential-oil/ - many hits. Many hits. In my understanding, Eng. aroma and flavor appeal to two different senses - smell and taste, respectively - so I would classify Eng. or It. balsamic aroma as an idiomatic term of art for a scent or aroma, even if It. aroma alone would be a flavor.

Notes to answerer
Asker: On other labels I have used "flavouring" at the times that "aroma" is listed alone, when it comes right at the end of the ingredients. You think this is not correct?
