Longevity keeps me from buying several fragrances that I enjoy...Currently, sillage and longevity are keeping me from purchasing Chanel Egoiste. I'm not sure if it's because I'm testing via splash method, but I've had to reapply twice today and it's holding me back. If my girlfriend doesn't like the fragrance, I'll simply wear it when I'm alone or at work if it's safe enough. Not really too scared of anything with fragrances per se.
Few to no fears, but still some reluctance regarding: possible poor longevity, possible allergies (again, thankfully no allergies and ailments incompatible with fragrance use identified in my case), discontinuations, not having access to Basenotes and to other opportunities, both virtual and IRL, to discuss, compare, inform myself about fragrance, not having tested/known/formed an opinion about enough fragrances etc.
But even these (usually minor) difficulties are largely balanced and compensated by the satisfactions existing thanks to the fragrance hobby.
