Sukkot Myrtle one of the most fragrant plants of the Lulav set that was waved in the Holy Temple”.
Arizal connects the sense of smell to the month of Adar, the month that contains the holiday of Purim. The heroes of that holiday were Mordechai and Esther, both of whom have a connection to scent.
Esther’s real name was Hadassah, which means myrtle (a good smelling plant). And the Talmud relates the name Mordechai to Mor diror, which is musk (Bnei Yissaschar). Sukkot a time which the most fragrant plant of the lulav set was waved in the Holy Temple.
The four [species] at sukkot represent the four-letter Name of God, with the lulav being the [Hebrew letter] vav, which channels the divine energy into the world and man. If for no other reason, the four must be held together while waving for the Unity of the Name.
