I consider myself a "seasonal" wearer for the most part.
And I understand your thoughts regarding climate controlled environments.
However (and I know you know this, I'm just explaining my perspective) there's more to seasons than temperature alone. Each season has its own unique rhythm, associations, moods, and energy which can not be altered in any significant way through heating or air-conditioning. And certain notes and combinations of notes, IMO, are better suited at certain times of the year than others.
I wouldn't wear Burberry London or Pure Malt in the summer even if I was going to be working in a meat-locker all day. The notes don't fit that time of year. Their vibrations don't jibe with the position of the earth in relation to the sun. They don't smell right and they don't feel right unless there's a chill in the air and the days are short. Similarly, I wouldn't VIW in January because it would feel forced and futile, as though I'm trying to conjure the summer instead of just appreciating the winter.
I have year-round fragrances that I use. These are usually best when worn indoors in the winter and outdoors in the summer (Bleu, for example). I also have indoor/winter and outdoor/winter and indoor/summer and outdoor/summer (L'Air Du Desert Marocain for example) specific fragrances and of course a bunch that can be worn indoors and outdoors.
The indoor/winter vs. outdoor/winter fragrance is something I've come to appreciate as a result of a lot of mistakes i.e., by wearing something indoors in the winter that became incredibly cloying and thick to the point it where it was oppressive and cumbersome. The building I work in is not great in terms of climate control, and is generally either too cold (which I don't mind) or way too hot (which I can't stand).
I can speak for someone who lives in a place where there are 4 distinct seasons.
I'm sure if I lived somewhere where it was hot all year, or cold all year, I'd have a different perspective, and I'd definitely be less of a seasonal wearer.
