Besamim and the Tree of Knowledge

+2
−0

I have heard many times that one of the reasons we use Besamim for Havdallah is because smell is the only sense that didn't benefit from the Eitz Hadas.

The Bnei Yissaschar says that smell is the only sense that didn't benefit from the Eitz Hadas (Adar 1:9) but where does it say that this is one of the reasons for using Besamim for Havdallah?

Like any library, this site offers tons of great information, but does not offer personalized, professional advice, and does not take the place of seeking such advice from your rabbi.
