Hot weather : Kouros , Capucci PH.
Cold weather : Fahrenheit , Opium PH , Rochas Man .
1. Fille en Aiguilles
Hands down my favourite this year. It is my go-to winter/cold weather fragrance, and living in a country with such a short summer, it's no wonder it gets worn a lot.
2. Blu Mediterraneo Capri Orange
A distant second on my list. When it's warm or I want to feel summery, it's a juicy and cheerful fragrance.
3. Azemour les Orangers
Bitter, refreshing, a cool splash on the face kind of a scent.
4. Tilda Swinton Like This
Complex and comforting, a spicy wood-pudding fragrance.
Hot weather : Kouros , Capucci PH.
Cold weather : Fahrenheit , Opium PH , Rochas Man .
In answering your specific question of 'most worn fragrances in 2012', mine are herewith and I have based this not only from memory, but also by looking at the actual quantities of juice still left in the bottle!
1. Grey Vetiver - Tom Ford (daily work scent)
2. Polo Modern Reserve - Ralph Lauren (work/casual)
3. GIT - Creed (work/casual)
4. Amber Pour Homme Intense - Prada (work/evening wear)
5. French Lover - EdP Frederic Malle (work/casual)

The sense of smell, like a faithful counsellor, foretells its character.
A year of truly exceptional olfactory pleasure, but if I had to choose just a few that I wore more often...
Vintage Paco Rabanne Pour Homme (my tried and true...for many years!)
Guerlain Vetiver (various bottlings, layered wearings)
Versace L'Homme (Original Vintage, 90's formulation and current)
Oscar de la Renta Pour Lui (Vintage)
Caron Pour un Homme (Vintage and current) - very frequently worn with Agua Lavanda splashed/layered on during the course of the wearing
Gucci Pour Homme Original (1976)
YSL Pour Homme (Vintage)
Zino Davidoff (Original Script Logo, layered with the reformulation)
Viktor & Rolf Antidote
John Varvatos John Varvatos
...and too many others that were often enjoyed to be listed, but these are the scents that stood out as most frequently worn by myself. Plus, there were special occasion bottles.
Looking forward to a New Year with hope and a continued passion to enjoy olfactory art.

“Some perfumes are as fragrant as an infant’s flesh, sweet as an oboe’s cry, and greener than the spring; While others are triumphant, decadent or rich; Having the expansion of infinite things, like ambergris and musk, benzoin and frankincense, which sing the transports of the mind and every sense.”
― Charles Baudelaire, The Flowers of Evil & Paris Spleen
Kenzo pour homme
Gucci pour homme 2

Probably Arso and Fille en Aiguilles. I also wore various Slumberhouse fragrances quite a bit during the latter part of the year.
Likely Mugler Cologne, Rochas Man, LeMale, Body Kouros, Dior Homme, and oddly, I like to spritz Oscar Pour Lui at bed time.
Did you record wearing's from the start of the year until December, since your top five only account for 151 wearing's throughout the year which is low, but means you've presumably worn other frags, or that some days you went frag free (I dread to think!)? :-)
Sous le Vent
Tiffany for Men
Myrrhe et Delires
Plenty of Eau de Guerlain, Cologne du Parfumeur, Imperial & EDC du Coq thru the summer.
Others that I came back to quite a few times and consider FBW incl. Interlude Man, Opus VI, Tonka Imperiale, Mon Precieux Nectar, Seville a l'Aube, Encens Mythique, Songes d'un Bois d'Ete.

Hot weather = cold weather = Kurkdjian's APOM Homme. Since I bought it I've tried about 150 scents. Nothing comes close.
Miller Harris Vetiver Bourbon most to the time.
By Kilian Pure Oud most of the rest of the time.
Arso or CdG Hinoki once in a while.
My fav's for 2012 were Chanel Allure Homme Sport, Vince Camuto for Men, Hanae Mori (original and HiM), Le Male by JP Gaultier and Bleu de Chanel.
dior homme and 360 red
I only started keeping track once I signed up to BN this year, but looking at my scent of the day records, Sequoia is by far my most worn. I'm not sure it's my favourite, but it worked so well for me as an office scent through the winter.
Gucci PH II by far, followed by LIDGE that I bought only in october and Acqua Di Gio which was my go to scent during hot summer days.
TOP 3 hot weather:
1. Gucci Pour Homme II
2. Lalique Encre Noire
3. Creed Aventus
TOP 3 cold weather:
1. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
2. Chanel Coromandel
3. Dior Homme
Encens Mythique D'Orient
Portrait of a Lady
All of them are pretty new and going thru the Guerlain too fast
I'm going to have to buy another bottle. That hasn't happened yet!!!

YSL PH Haute Concentration
