Indian grocery stores have several aisles containing many fragrant spices that are packaged in plastic bags. Should I say Borei Minei B'Samim? If so, should I say it upon entering the store or only when I am in the spice aisle?
Assumptions / Motivation
I am browsing the store and have no specific intention to smell the spices when I walked in. But, I do get pleasure from the smell
The smell is a general mixture from various spices, but I can't tell exactly which spices they are coming from, other than what I know about what Indian stores sell, in general.
The spices are all in bags or sacks. Only when I enter the aisle do I actually see what's there. Do I have to take a specific spice out of the bag, or can I smell it through the bag?
Can I make the bracha on the spicy "air" knowing that the smell comes from spices whether I see them or not?
