I've got a lot of allergy problems, though fortunately not with my colognes. My problems are with pollen, dust and several common foods. One thing about allergies, it they CAN change over time (but not always). So you can try to avoid it for a year or two and see if your allergy to it clears up. That has worked with me for several foods. You can also try using antihistamine (internal or topical) when you use that fragrance. There are things you can try to eliminate or minimize the reaction but ultimately you are the one who has to decide which is the lesser evil.
