That's kind of like saying that you heard that the Porsche Cayman and Range Rover are both good cars and then asking which you should buy.
They're totally different. You like AMen, so perhaps NH is a safer bet. If you just like gourmands perhaps you should just go for that.
If you want to diversify your collection, Habit Rouge is the most different of these. You may hate it though. Then again, it's about 1/5th the price of NH.
As usual, the answer is to sample before you waste a lot of money on a blind buy. It only takes one bad buy to cover the cost of a bunch of samples.
