A fragrance is supposed to smell good. If you're thinking "isn't it supposed to turn someone on?" it doesn't work that way. Different people like different things, so different scents will have different effects on different people. I'll use two female friends as examples. One goes gaga over Gucci Pour Homme. The other loves Hanae Mori, H.M. ...those are two very different scents, but the women are also very different too.
Now, let's talk about weather. You can wear whatever you want whenever you want if it pleases you. But it's worth considering how your tastes change with the weather, and if you're wearing scents in order to smell more attractive to others, keep in mind that their tastes will change with the weather too. As en example of that point, think about food. Ever notice how people crave different foods at different times of the year? People eat more soups and stews in the winter, and more salads in the summer, including things like potato salad and macaroni salad. Or, how about beer as an example of tastes changing through the seasons? IPAs are big sellers in the summer. In the winter, there's nothing like a heavy porter or stout! Of course, the beer example only works among those who know the difference between real beer and that silly Bud/Coors/Miller garbage.
