Hacivat against the greedy Englishman
After the name Aventus has been mentioned again and again in previous statements and comments about this fragrance, I would like to contribute my own words and compare the two with each other
Hacivat is a figure of a well-known Turkish shadow play and the fragrance house Nishane (also from Turkey) has chosen this name for one of its most famous fragrances
Hacivat is said to be an educated man who likes to talk pompously, but is far from being free of mistakes. Whether there is a connection to the scent here, everyone must decide for himself ;)
On the other hand, I do not need to say many introductory words about Aventus, as its reputation already precedes it. Aventus is already known as THE pineapple-wood scent and everything similar is often labeled as a cheap clone experiment
I'm just gonna take a little off the top of my head here.
--description of fragrance-
The combination of pineapple and woody notes is of course excellent for both.
I would like to go into the scent process mainly on peculiarities that I have noticed, other perfumers have already described the fragrance in their comments masterfully anyway and their noses are probably much more accurate than mine.
Directly after spraying:
Hacivat starts Beutend more citric than his opponent. Here at Parfumo, pineapple, grapefruit and bergamot are given as top notes, for me this creates the fragrance illusion of mandarin. For me, Aventus is mainly about pineapple and apple, with pineapple being much more dominant. This makes it seem much warmer and fruitier to me. Hacivat appears cleaner and more refreshing, properties that make it more attractive for me especially in summer
--Wider scent drain--
As usual, the citric notes say goodbye at some point and the pineapple reappears in the Hacivat. In fact, this is the point (after about an hour) where I think the two are most similar. Together they are now also slowly moving into the slightly woody, but never those central, almost distinctive woody notes that you find in a Terre d'Hermès. Another perfume had pencils on its mind, which I think is a good idea, even more so for Hacivat than for Aventus. The latter still gets a certain spiciness as it goes on, but I'm still not sure if I really miss its counterpart. Hacivat remains true to its main notes here for a longer time.
--Sillage and durability--
Aventus is well known for its ability to almost irradiate everything in its immediate vicinity with its scent, a quality with which Hacivat can surprisingly keep up with, and sometimes even surpass, it. Especially after spraying it on, it projects extremely, I applied it with a single squirt while walking in the park and it accompanied me strongly perceptible for over an hour like a dense air honeycomb. But in the long run it doesn't reach the Aventus completely, it still fires after a few hours, while Hacivat is still well perceptible but not at this extreme level. But durability is far above average for both fragrances.
--effect and use--
For many people, the Aventus is the club fragrance par excellence, precisely because it is striking and widely perceptible.
But that is exactly what bothers me so often about him, I always don't know when to apply him.
There won't be any more clubs this year anyway and for other occasions he is just too pushy for me. Hacivat likes to jump into this gap, he is as I described above simply a ticking refreshing and also, especially after a short while, significantly more reserved. Then you can also simply apply it in your free time or on a cosy evening at home.
But the fragrance more suitable for the club remains for me the Aventus.
Actually, the price plays a minor role in the evaluation of a perfume, because none of us carries a price tag around with us, which is clearly visible to others and tells how much we paid for this pleasure. A fragrance is judged as it is. Nevertheless, the two are in a price category (200€+) where you should ask yourself if it's worth to leave both of them at your place. Because they are a bit too similar. So if you already have the Aventus at home, or don't like it, you should perhaps be satisfied with a small sample.
Hacivat is a gradiose fragrance and definitely a must try for all Aventus fans. Both are on a very high level, and depending on my mood I prefer one or the other.
Tonight, for me, it would be the Hacivat.
But to say that this is just another clone would be a mistake for me
