    I don't think I own any that would do that. I like to wear them seasonally because they really fit the specific season that I have assigned them to. That doesn't mean I don't wear them at various, random times but I like to have my classifications.

    The only scent I can think of that might be able to be worn all year is Geir. That is the only scent I would consider wearing in all 4 seasons.

    1. Kouros, although it is best in warmer environments.
    2. Any fresh scent that simply is strong enough to be noticeable in winter, esp. fresh fougeres like Paco XS.

    Although I have a seasonal preference for each of the following, I have worn them all seasons:

    Antaeus
    Allure PH
    GIT
    Terre d'Hermes
    Memoire d' Homme (light application in warm weather)

    I have some friends who find it funny that I would wear scents seasonally. But then again, they all smell the same.

    I am fair-skinned so that limits my choices year round as far as I am concerned but I do have my seasonal choices (although I often tend to blend Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter - it all depends on the "heat" of the season):

    Spring/Summer: Gendarme, Eau d'Hadrien, Aqua di Parma; maybe Eau du Sud
    Fall/Winter: Marc Birley - day/work; Creed Tabarome at night

    ...I need to consider some new ones!

    Drakkar Noir, it can be worn any time of the year, hot or cold. It's not heavy and it's not too lite it's not sweet or aquatic, I find it to be excellent for Spring specially.

    A few candidates:

    Ungaro II
    Yerbamate
    Santal Noble
    Green Irish Tweed
    Dia

    Then again, where I live summers aren't all that hot, and winters aren't all that cold.

    I am living in New Orleans, a semi-tropical climate. The only fragrance I own and wear that could be considered for every season is Versace's "The Dreamer"

    I can safely wear Bvlgari Black and Lolita Lempicka au masculin year round, as long as I use a light trigger finger in the summer. They're both light enough to not get cloying, and complex enough to be sexy .

    Edited to add Burberry Brit. I love wearing this one on rainy summer days.

    I thin a few folks have pointed out that a lot of supposedly autumnal/wintery frags work surprisingly well in hot climates. There should be a thread somewhere Light applicaton or misting technique can change the character of a fragrance.
    One I find janus faced is Piper nigrum. The minty-fennel opening is crisp and spring-like, the pepper-styrax drydown more wintery.

    Armani Code, Polo Double Black, CK Euphoria for men to name a few and I would third Drakkar Noir which is very underrated nowadays.
