Yes Chicky, slugs are partial to heliotrope but if you keep an eye in it in its early stages, removing slugs (I found slugs rather than snails and just a couple of larger ones) then the older leaves seem less attractive.
I grow the woody,,perennial variety...less purple flowers but more fragrant...Chatsworth
agree with Bob....the cherry pie plant should be grown a lot more. I have them in pots by front and side doors, by pathways, under windowsills and in the garden....where they grow much larger. The scent just wafts in the air esp on hot still sunny days
