Yesterday
You can't imagine how I was looking forward to the test. The scent images I had already formed in my head. Like a little kid at Christmas. There he was...the HACIVAT!!!

The packaging is nicely done. Nothing wobbles. The atomizer cap could be used without hesitation, also as doorstop for fire doors. Once dropped, you have to flex the heavy thing out of your laminate
Our test candidate today starts with a very present and strikingly sweet pineapple. Reminds me directly... ...of sweet, slightly too bold pineapple.
Why on earth pineapple?! I don't get it. What Yesterday by the Beatles in cover songs is pineapple for men's fragrance. If I sing Yesterday louder, it doesn't mean the song gets better
Grapefruit and wood seem to accompany the quite ripe fruit. Both impressions in combination get for me, also in other fragrances, a synthetic touch. I just can't do anything with this combination. Hacivat is also so loud that even after a spray on the back of my hand, after a short time, I get a headache that has been washed. In the fresh air it still works, but indoor for me in the long term unacceptable.

Hacivat does not really have a mossy or green character for me. In essence, the impression remains linear over several hours. The own nose can close at the volume, but the smell comes back in regular contractions. This pineapple impression only works for me in the beginning. In the medium term the woody side comes to the fore, paired with a very decent load of aroma chemicals that want to keep this "fruity" fresh impression and remind me of Bond No.9.

I was not able to detect a large odour transition during my tests and different weather conditions. This somewhat abstract-artificial wood impression certainly lasts for weeks on clothes and outlasts even the strongest wash cycle. I had imagined a scent that is balanced, elusive and fascinating. I got a scent that starts strikingly and bores me a little bit towards the end.
Nevertheless, it remains to be said that my environment has responded positively to the scent. Feedback from my fellow men in the average: Serious but loud scent...smells OK.
I don't think Hacivat is bad, but that's all I feel
If you are looking for a complex fragrance, you are wrong with Hacivat. Even an Aventus 2.0 I can't see anything in Hacivat. Hacivat reminds me of the hype around Orion, although the two are not really comparable. If you're looking for a loud, serious scent that scents whole station halls and lasts longer than the Duracell rabbit, you should look for Hacivat. Unfortunately, I have to stop writing now, as I had another spray to freshen up my headache. The bottle was allowed to pass on to someone who certainly appreciates it more than I do.

Feeling better?
Introduction:
Nishane, a fragrance house that's high up in my book. All the way up? No, actually first place. But why? The fragrances that come from the Turkish fragrance manufactory are all unique, deep in character, enormous in durability and sillage, and you always have the feeling that they lead a fragrance direction to perfection. This also happened in the case of "Hacivats". That fruity, woody, fresh scent that I would recognize among 1000 different scents. I would smell him even among all the Aventus dupes. Yes, you heard right, this is "again" a fragrance that goes in the famous direction of the old. But somehow it is also completely different and in addition the best thing my nose was ever allowed to sniff. I'd like to explain myself
Categories:
Hacivat unites in its fragrance complexity everything that is important to me in fragrances: freshness, longevity, graphite note/chalky undertone wood, light fruit chords, extreme cleanliness and wearable all year round.

Description of fragrance:
It is precisely these properties that have been brought into an almost perfect balance in Hacivat, so that I have to smell this bottle at least once a day - yes, I'm crazy - and I can't help but smell it. For daily wearing it is simply too good for me, especially considering the price! If you spray it, you are immediately enveloped by an extremely intense cloud, a cloud in which pineapple clearly dominates and - similar to Aventus - is underpinned by a graphite note. The grapefruit also gives it a slightly acidic and citric note. The cedar that slowly joins in rounds off the whole and gives additional freshness. Joa and that stays like that for hours. With me it lasts about 14-18 hours and that with 3-4 sprayers. Also the Sillage is monstrous, my colleague could still clearly perceive it around me after 8 hours. Consequently, more than 2 spray bursts should be avoided. If you relate this again to the price, it almost seems appropriately priced (fun!). Towards the end, you will have a light, clean veil on your skin, which you can still easily notice the next morning. Wonderful!

Comparison to Aventus:
In comparison to Aventus, it must be clearly stated here that it is less smoky and the fruity chords, especially the pineapple, are noticeable much longer. Also the chalk note is more enormous, sometimes you get the feeling that you have had your neck rubbed with chalk and then pineapple drizzled over it :D We don't even have to talk about the durability, although the Aventus is not bad for me (7-8 hours), but this one beats them all :

What I find so:
Except for the price, I really can't find anything that would bother me about him! If I had to choose a fragrance that I keep from my collection, it would clearly be Hacivat.

The exterior:
That No. 1 fragrance is framed in a falcon, which also deserves attention, it is handmade and made of a kind of stone. In addition, the packaging is also very valuable overall. Especially the 50ml version comes in a noble wooden box in which the perfume is embedded.

Conclusion:
Feeling better?
Not for me...

False expectations are disappointed
Through various videos on Youtube (especially through the infamous top ten lists) I became aware of this fragrance and the house of Nishane. Several times it was described as an aventus killer and praised for its outstanding durability and silage. So when I recently purchased a YUNIQU subscription to dive into the world of niche fragrances (I'm still at the beginning of my fragrance journey), it wasn't much of a surprise that I had Hacivat, among others, sent to me in my first shipment. However, when I tried it for the first time, I was disappointed at first. All I smelled was a pungent, tart citrus bomb that reminded me of the opening of Goldfield & Banks Bohemian Lime (one family member even associated it with disinfectant!).

Please don't get me wrong, Hacivat is by no means a bad scent. My disappointment only came from the fact that I imagined a gentle, balanced from the start, slightly fruity-woody freshie. So it's no wonder that I left it for now and devoted more time to the other fragrance I had been sent. Yesterday, however, I looked at Hacivat again and found that it had more to offer than I originally thought.

The fragrance starts, as already described above, very citrusy. A certain sweetish fruitiness (presumably the pineapple) supports the bergamot and grapefruit without ever becoming star of the show. The scent gets a bit greener as it progresses (probably due to oakmoss and patchouli) and then woodier. In the process, the citrus notes withdraw and the composition becomes rounder and sweeter.

At durability and silage there is nothing to complain about on my skin, when I sprayed him in the evening he was still perceptible at noon for me and others.

The price is difficult for me: 305 € list price and 200 € market price per 100 ml are now times quite a house number. The fragrance I do not like so well that I would "invest" my saved pocket money (I'm only 16 :P) in it. In addition, I have at the moment not really use for a citrus freshness, because Bleu de Chanel (EdT) is already in my collection.

Conclusion: Hacivat is in my eyes a successful sparkling citrus fragrance with woody-green undertones and fruity nuances. However, who expects an Aventus clone with better durability and silage, will probably be disappointed.

All who have found their great fragrance love in Hacivat, I hereby call on you to also try the Bohemian Lime!

I hope you guys enjoyed my first review. I wish you a nice evening :D

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
--introduction--
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.

--price--
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.

--Summary--
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

Chemical Weapons Alert
A fresh scent that lasts. It makes my ears prick up. That's what I'm looking for. Pineapple and grapefruit are welcome
But what a shock on the first test. Nausea at first, then a headache. This smell is the exact opposite of what I'm looking for. I also like it high-grade-intensive, but most of all I like it relaxed. And not so loud please
The positive thing about loud and strong, however, is that such a fragrance is often very pleasant from a distance and fills the room with an attractive aura. But somebody has to wear the fragrance and then has it right under his nose. And that is (at least for me) really no pleasure.

Here there is artificial wood, ambroxan and in the base a powerful synthetic orange blossom that is fruitful. Like a sliced pineapple with orange blossom in it. This reminds me very much of the orange blossom of Kurkjan's Petit Matin
Granted: The base note also enchants me. The headache stuff has warped and the radiant fruit blossom looks very attractive.

Overall, however, I would rather warn than recommend. Please use very carefully! Place a sprayer in the air and underneath. For God's sake, no more! And in any case hold your breath! Breathe in only at a sufficient distance from the place of spray. When sniffing the bottle, do not touch the spray head with your nose! Otherwise it's over for today with scents test.
