Looking for fall/spring recommendations (no leather, tobacco, amber, powder).

Hi all,

I live in SoCal and our winter is really just a mild fall/spring. On days that start out cold (~50 F), the temperature will sometimes reach 70 F, and as a result, most winter fragrances can become overpowering.

Fragrances that currently work for me in the winter:
L'Artisan Parfumeur - Mechant Loup
L'Artisan Parfumeur - Seville a L'Aube

Both are cozy in cold temperatures without becoming stuffy if it gets a bit warmer. I would like to add a third fragrance to my rotation. Projection must be medium or low (I work in close proximity to people), and longevity would ideally compensate for the low sillage.

Scents I liked in cold weather, but they became overpowering in warm weather:
L'Artisan Parfumeur - Tea for two
L'Artisan Parfumeur - Havana Vanille (Vanille Absolument)
Serge Lutens - Chergui
Serge Lutens - Jeux de Peau
Comme des Garcons - Floriental
Hermes - Ambre Narguile
Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier - Ambre Mythique
Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier - Ambre Precieux
Parfum D'empire - Ambre Russe
Piotr Czarnecki - Shihan (Sensei)

The trend I see is that scents with a strong leather, tobacco, amber, and powder component don't work well for me. Anything that is sweet is also bad, and I just full-on hate ambergris.

Any recommendations? Preferably niche, but I am curious enough to try anything.
