As an avid wearer of both the EDT and EDP, and given your circumstances, I would advise you to get the EDT at Sears.
I guess the question I would ask myself if I were you would be: “Is there anything else I want at Sears that would trump the Heritage, like kitchen stuff, tools, etc.?” If you would answer “no” to that (and as a basenoter, I think you would ), then definitely pull the trigger on the EDT.
I find the EDT immensely satisfying; maybe even a bit more than the EDP because of its bracing topnotes and overall more “dynamic” feel. It’s extremely multi-layered and evolving. The EDP I find to be an even richer version of the base of the EDT with the patchouli toned down, and more linear then the EDT. Both versions are extremely long lasting and form an aura around me when I wear them.
I love them both for different occasions, but if I had to pick one to own, without a doubt, it would be the EDT.
