I know just what you mean, and the edt is my favorite. One day I was grinding some lemons down the not-so-fresh smelling food disposal in the sink, and it reminded me of Jicky. Wonderful stuff! Wordy
, I get that too early in the morning turn-off on some fragrances, too. Some are just better after noon!
For October's Amber Sniff & Speak, I'm wearing Prada's L'Eau Ambrée
. Ingredients listed on the box include: Mandarin, Cedrat, Rose de Mai, Gardenia Jasminoide, Somalian Oppoponax, Indonesian Patchouli. Hmmm...no amber listed, which is probably why I like it.
Anyway, it does, somehow, evoke a sense of faint sweet briny ambergris to my nose. I often reach for this fragrance before going to church. One reason is because it is so unobjectionable, the other is because I get little whiffs of it now and then that remind me of incense. This fragrance has a purity that pleases me.
