Magen Abot – e”H Ribi Mordekhai Lebhar s”t
The minhag is not to use spices in the Habdala after Yom Kipur, even when Yom Kipur falls on Shabat.
See Shulhan ‘Arukh (Orah Hayim 624:3) and Ribi Refael Barukh Toledano zs”l (Qisur Shulhan ‘Arukh, p. 456).
11. Birkat haLebana at the End of Yom Kipur
The minhag is to say Birkat HaLebana immediately after ‘Arbit at the end of Yom Kipur.
The reason for saying Birkat haLebana immediately after Yom Kipur is that Birkat haLebana must be said when one is in a state of joy; and one is in a state of joy immediately after Yom Kipur, when one has been cleansed of all his sins. This is in contrast to the opinion of Ribi Eliyahu of Vilna zs”l (the Vilna Gaon), who rules that Birkat haLebana should be said before Yom Kipur, in order to accrue merit before the holiday.

26. During ‘Arbit of Yom Kipur we drape ourselves in the talet, but we do not say the berakha. Only during the day do we make a berakha, as once the sun has set we no longer say one. We wear the talet at this moment so that we are able to pray in awe and with more kavana. We do not make a berakha if the sun has set because the misva of sisit is only during the day and not at night. See Qisur Shulhan ‘Arukh p. 320, Qorban Minha p. 172.
43. At qeriat shema’ of ‘Arbit and Shaharit, all of the congregation says the pasuq “Barukh shem kebod malkhuto le’olam va’ed,” together and aloud. This is because Moshé Rabenu a”h heard the angels saying this pasuq (Midrash Raba; Perashat Vaethanan) and on Yom Kipur we are compared to the angels. Therefore, we say this pasuq aloud like they do. Throughout the rest of the year we say it quietly because in Sefer Debarim, Moshé Rabenu a”h did not say this pasuq after reciting Shema’ Yisrael, as brought down in Gemara Pesahim 56. See Kaf haHayim Siman 619:34.
80. We begin building the Suka immediately upon the completion of Yom Kipur. This is so that we go from one misva to the next, as it is written (Tehilim 84:8) “Yelekhu mehayil el hayil.” See the QS”A by Ribi Toledano p. 325, Osrot haMaghreb (Yom Kipur), and Eliya Raba Siman 625:2.
