I'm sorry I can answer your question as the only version of Bandit I know is the reformulated EdP forumla I own a bottle of. I've never really thought there were lots of leaves, grass and twigs in it either, which I find stimulating that you find. I have to get my bottle out soon and spray me some. So I haven't such delicate green and woodsy things, but maybe birch tar though? Sometimes Bandit reminds me of the wooden walls of a heated sauna.
