Cat jumping on door

So... I have a cat that I got at around 8 or 9 months old. I always knew this was a risky thing to do since they develop unwanted habits, but since it was already neutered and had shots I bit the bullet and tried. He is very adamant about getting into the house and jumps on the door (the window is only on the upper half of the door) and he is tearing up our newly painted door. We have tried citrus, perfume, very sticky tape, or anything else that cats normally dislike. He doesn't even mind being sprayed by water. I normally love cats but this one is about to drive me crazy! Any advice???

Hang a door decoration....wreath, etc. maybe that will deter him. I think he's just letting you know he wants in, and it's his way of "knocking".
