    I own all 3 and they're all distinctively different.

    CNH is a powerful, woddy aromatic with a focus on cinnamon, cloves, labdanum and sandalwood
    CNSI is a little less powerful but still strong, tea and hibiscus scent. I've worn it in the heat, and its lasted over 24 hours.
    CN21 is the least powerful of the 3, but still lasts 18+ hours for me. Focused on milky, spicy notes drying down to a milky patchouli and tonka mix.

    Worth owning all 3 IMO, especially if you like strong scents.
    I have left Basenotes due to excessive childish behavior by community members.
    If you need to contact me, please use alternate forms of communication.

    All three are very good. But my top choice would be 21, followed by Scent Intense, then Homme.

    My choice is 21. I think I could do better than Scent Intense for its genre but there aren't that many milky or roseless saffron fragrances. That's not to say Scent Intense isn't worth owning in general but I'd rather have 21.
    Never tried Costume National Homme.

    Costume National Homme is awesome. Quality and blending is excellent as is projection and longevity.

    Personally, got a chance to test both "Homme and 21" and personally, I am more towards "Homme" side, very good and well-blended fragrance IMO.
    21 is also fantastic fragrance and I think both are "get-able".
    Will try to test "Scent Intense" very soon.

    Thanks all of the helpful replies

    I only ever gelled with Homme in this line. It's been compared to Quorum but I think it smells much nicer (as do most scents).

    All 3 are wonderful. But CN Homme is the best in my view.

    I can't thank dear Darvant enough. I got this perfume with his suggestion. It's spot on. Elegance in bottle!
