    Smelled it a couple weeks back, but didn't try it on the skin. Of the three new ones Korrigan's opening was the most interesting of the three, so I got a sample of that, but found I didn't care for Korrigan's drydown all that much. I'm hoping to go back to the Scent Bar in LA within the next few weeks, and try out the rest of the line.

    I own this. It's a very nice scent but lighter than I thought it would be.

    Tried all 3 a few weeks back. Dissappointed; they all came off as soft and subtle and I was expecting offerings with the weight and presence comparable to that of Idole. Based on the notes, I expected to like them Galaad>Korrigan>Akaad. Ended up appreciating Akaad the most, then Korrigan, then Galaad.

    Eactly! Fun bottles with so-so juice.

    Thirded! Except I preferred Galaad over Korrigan.

    To my nose, Akkad>Galaad>Korigan. The only one that was even mildly impressive was Akkad that merited a good to very good rating with Galaad very average and Korigan below average. None of them really merit a purchase at the $180 they are selling for, IMO, unless you want their absolutely beautiful bottles.

    I too was disappointed with all 3. I keep hoping for the same brilliance as Idole EDT from this line.
