hello
I installed in my garden two scented Clematites: montana smelling chocolate and armandii apple blossom installed in the fall 2011
I want a third climber very fragrant and possibly persistent
my mini temperature of -5 degree Celsius

"fragrant and possible persistent"...

I wonder if Sweet Autumn clematis would be good for you. It can be pretty persistent and is very fragrant.

I'll add Confederate Jasmine to the list:

Confederate Jasmine (Trachelospermum jasminoides)

It is my favorite fragrant vine and certainly hardy to -5 c and below.

I love the perfume of Confederate Jasmine!

I wonder if the two can be grown together, intermixed/vined (Confederate Jasmine and Sweet Autumn). Then you get the early flowers and fragrance of the jasmine followed with the flowers/fragrance of Sweet Autumn in late summer/early fall.

Just thinking out loud, trying to get more bang for the buck! Guess I should follow my suggestions and let ya'll know how it turned out.

Hello
thank you for your advice
I thought the clematis terniflora had a deciduous foliage!
I do not like the smell of Trachelospermum jasminoides: too sweet
The foliage persitant is not a requirement
The idea of mixing two climbers is very original .. why not?

Hmm...well, if not Confederate Jasmine maybe substitute with Carolina jasmine (or "jessamine) for the earlier flowering, eh?

I love my Carolina Jessamine, because it blooms so early...the blooms can be really appreciated, since not a lot is blooming then!
