Hi Jonnyv -
Personally, I think fragrances (when applied at the right time/occasion) can be year-round. Only EXTREME temperatures make certain fragrances 'unwearable'. And, if you are spending an evening indoors...anything that fancies your mood is perfectly fine. I would look to add to your collection, rather than worry about putting away bottles, which could be wearable year-round.
Look at getting some vetivers - including Guerlain Vetiver (your choice on formulation based upon your affinity for tobacco), but the current and prior formulation are both excellent, but different. Also, I would recommend looking into (for warmer weather), more citrus scents. The range to choose from is broad - but you should start with some classics and look for compositions that express themselves to you. Monsieur Balmain, Eau Rochas Pour Homme, and YSL Pour Homme Haute Concentration are all wonderful. And...make sure you spend some time with Acqua di Parma's line. Fresh, distinct and timeless.
Last recommendation...I would include a nice aromatic fougere (or two) into your collection - they wear well year-round. Look into Worth Pour Homme, Patrick of Fragrances of Ireland, and Azzaro Pour Homme (if you like anise). I mention these as they all are good in current formulation. I recommend Vintage Paco Rabanne Pour Homme, if you can find it...a timeless classic, but current formulation is not even worth looking at.
Enjoy - cheers,
