    Aventus if you dont wear more than 1 spray in summer. Yeah i use to love aventus until i sprayed 5 sprays (of a sample), during summer, and went to a family get-together to eat at a friends house. Little did i know wed be spending the whole day in the small dining room with everyone crowded in. I swear they were looking at me weird and half of them left not long after i arrived lol.

    Of the ones I've tried so far...

    -GIT is close. Projects better in warmer weather than colder weather.
    -Bleu is a little closer. Doesn't project as well outside now that it's winter here, but holds up.
    -Mont Blanc Legend is my best bet right now. For me, it completely fits all of your requirements. Projects less in winter than summer, but still projects well.

    It depends what you mean by project. I generally don't want people to really smell what I am wearing very much, so in the winter I don't overspray or anything like that to get people to notice me.

    As for my collection of versatile stuff:

    GIT
    Himalaya (I sound like a broken record, but this is underrated)
    Aventus
    TdH (EDT)
    Armani code (not my favorite if I'm honest)

    GIT. End of discussion. The swiss army knife of fragrance. Projects dandy in the winter and smells great in the summer, too. I find it much more versatile than Aventus. GIT beats out MI by a nose, and I don't have projection issues with MI. My batch is an older one right now that I was lucky enough to score from Ebay, and has gotten more than average compliments even after I stop smelling it (MI is notorious to me for olfactory fatigue, more than any other scent in my wardrobe).

    I would personally add Dior Homme as well, but am aware that's a suspect choice to many basenoters. I'd also add Chanel Eau de Cologne, but it has notorious longevity issues, and doesn't project all that well unless you bathe in it. But it's a great scent that I enjoy year-round, day and night.

    When you get right down to it, much of our labels are really artificial. What makes VIW a Summer cologne and not a Winter one? Why is a citrus scent a day but not a night cologne? Why is Van Cleef & Arpels Pour Homme considered a "classy work" scent, and not a "devil may care weekend scent"? And yes, I'm guilty of labeling my colognes just like the rest of us -- I have VIW in my Summer rotation but wear it only a handful of times when the temperature is below 60.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    LOL

    That's a terrible feeling.

    And a good way to ruin one of your favorite frags, at least for a couple of months.

    In my opinion, a scent that meets all or most these requirements, is Rive Gauche by YSL.
    Currently wearing: Citrus & Wood by Yardley

    Agree with all the suggestions of Rive Gauche and Bleu. There are probably lots of others that I'm just not familiar with.

    Versace's The Dreamer would top that list for me.
    Others that work year round for me include Versace Pour Homme, Chez Bond, Bvlgari Aqva, Mugler's Ice*Men, Swiss Army Classic, Cool Water (& its flankers), Burberry Sport, and Platinum Egoiste.

    +1 on Terre. I was going to suggest GIT as well, but I don't think it copes well in very strong heat...
