Halacha - Brachot
Submitted by Adam  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: An excellent question. The Magen Avraham proposes the source of the minhag is based on many people not being familiar with the intricacies of different berachos on various fragrances, and we don't want someone to become confused in the middle of havdala. Based on this reason, Shmiras Shabbos K'Hilchaso proposes that the minhag should not apply in precisely the circumstance you mention. However since other seforim suggest other reasons for the minhag which may apply even when smelling the besamim separate from the rest of havdala, he leaves the issue unresolved.
