I ordered four samples. Diamine Peach Haze, Caran d'Ache Electric Orange, Pelikan Edelstein Mandarin. Peach Haze was too light; Caran d'Ache was very nice as was the Pelikan. To my eye the Iroshizuki was the best–––most fully saturated and strong. The Pelikan and the Caran d'Ache were tied for second. I will be ordering a larger bottle!
