Agree on the fir/pine, at least the grain you pictured looks like that.
As to the smell, although aromas can linger for quite some time, especially in raw wood, I suspect the smells are from something stored in them after they left the hardware store. It would be interesting to know if different drawers from different areas of the piece smelled differently. Also, can you identify any residue left in any drawer?
It might be an apothecary, as poopiekat said, however the size of the larger drawers and the divided lower shelf seem to indicate otherwise….IMO. At any rate, it’s a great find. congratulations!
