Well I lump it with Compulsion.
I tend to do it Role Playing aspect.  In that noe anyone can walk up to a bar maid cast a Fascination spell and take her home for the week.  No.  There has to be charm involved as well.  So I tend to do it like the old classic Vampire movies of yesteryear.  Need to reol play ghe scene and that play may help or hinder the spell.  That's how I balance it.  Since an ugly ogre might know the spell but even a barmaid may resist a fascination spell from an ogre if she can see him :)

This is also a Eye Contact spell balance for me.  Need the eye contact.  Course GMs can easilly balance it by having the victim run away quickly and that could make it hard ...then a full blow chase is involved with music..soundtrack and such...
