Quite nice
The top notes truly smell of the sea, but bottom notes have a sharp, green, minty smell.

Licorice
Does not smell like the beach at all, and is dominated by anise or licorice notes. Very weird for a beachy summer scent. No thanks, but maybe it will appeal around Halloween?

Sure it's Beachy, but...
It's more the smell of chemical sunscreen rather than salt air and a gentle breeze. It reminds me of the smell of locker rooms at a pool near the beach. Or, better analogy; have you ever been pressed together with hundreds of people trying to exit a cruise ship to go see one of the Caribbean destination ports - that smell of sweat, sunscreen, and perfume all swirling together with the smell of BO? That's what this smells like. Being pressed up to hundreds of people all wearing different perfumes and sunscreens - BLECH! I just don't think this is the scent for me. I have lots of other Comptoir Sud Pacifique, like Aloha Tiare, which is just sooooo delicious, that scent is like a tropical oasis, but this Aqua Motu there's no way I'm wearing it ever again.

Beach Queen!
Smells you're laying out in the sun of the Caribbean. It smells exactly like salt water from an ocean with a final touch of feminine perfume. Can be over powering if you spray too much, but it will stay on all day with one spray. Overall smells very nice and is a great day time perfume.

Unimpressed.
This was my first scent with my new subscription. Seems a little odd that Scentbird would send a new customer a perfume with a 2.8 star rating. Almost no scent to this perfume, and what is there smells like something an old Woodstock attendee would wear.

Sexy but fades to fast
Im really drawn to this scent and its at the top of those ive received from SB. the problem though is that the scent doesn't last very long. Still its a good one and will stay on my easy-to-reach shelf.

Bummer
I don't think I can really say that I liked this scent, but I didn't hate it. It just has a strange smell at first that I almost want to describe as fennel, and I hate fennel/black licorice. Not for me. I've thrown it in my gym bag, but probably still won't use it. It's also not a very strong scent, it fades pretty quickly.

Stinky
Musty. That is the perfect word to describe it. The smell is very watery but then it turns into the most sour, stinky, and pungent odor after the first few notes. This may be the worst perfume I've ever smelled. The latter notes, which become apparent after a few seconds, smell the worst. It's as if the smells of the notes are competing with each other. I can't even finish the sample product.

This might be the oddest perfume I've tried. When they say it smells like the beach, I smell a caviar undertone similar to Womanity. When it first goes on it smells strongly of Icy Hot but that chills out. Some days I dug this one, most days I didn't.

I love this stuff. There is a slight Icy Hot kind of smell, but it fades away into something subtle and summery and beachy and warm and I love it. I don't do well in sweet or floral fragrances, so this is perfect for me.

I love this scent, my husband loves it as well. It's light and very fresh smelling. My husband kept asking to smell my wrist. He couldn't get enough of it. I could wear this every day and never get tired of it! I will say when I first sprayed it, it had a bit of a medicinal smell but after a few moments that disappeared and left a light and fresh smell.

Not hugely impressed with this perfume. It's pretty strong for one spray and maybe it's just my body chemistry mixing with it, but smells a bit like it's meant for an older crowd. Definitely not the light and beachy smell I was hoping for.

With the phrase "South Pacific" right in the name, I was hoping for a fresh, clean marine scent. But this, under a marine topnote, has a very weird, chalky, musty-smelling middle note that is genuinely not pleasant to smell. I think, reading the Scentbird description, that is supposed to represent "beach sand," -- but yeah, not a good choice. It genuinely is unpleasant to smell. I pitched it. One star. Hope never to smell it again.

I wish I read the previous reviews before putting this in my queue. Oh it's HORRIBLE. I did a quick mist on my arm and at a quick whiff I thought I would pass out. But to give it a fair shot, I sprayed it on the back of my hand and waited a few minutes before sniffing it and although it softened, its not something I will wear- wasted my $ on this, can't even give it to my mom (which I do for the ones I think she'd like). Trash can here it comes- why can't I give 0 hearts???

This is more like a scent not a perfume. I like it for casual days. It changes a lot on me. When I first put it on it smells beachy but then it goes to just a sweet smell after a couple hours. It's okay, I would not order a $70 bottle.

This is a very unique scent. It smells like the beach... very warm with some floral. I can also detect the "sand" note. I actually already own the full size of this, but it tends to leak if it's not standing upright, and I wanted a travel size to take with me on vacation that wouldn't leak in my bag.

I like this scent, but I don't love it. It does smell beachy and fresh, but it doesn't last long. But I feel like that owes to this being an eau de toilette instead of full strength eau de parfum. All in all it's a passable substitution for more expensive versions of this kind of scent

Aqua Motu is an anti-perfume and I love it. This seriously smells like the beach. It smells like salty air, sand, humidity, and seaweed. This is not a suntan lotion, coconut, fruity drink kind of beach. This is the actual beach. My husband loves it on me and I suspect he may steal it a time or two.

I love how fresh and crisp this is. I live at the beach, and people are always saying I smell just like the ocean. Aqua Motu is not for everyone, though. If you're looking for a "perfume", I would say this doesn't fit the bill. It's just a natural, aquatic scent. My only complaint is that it doesn't last long enough!

Smells horrible... Not fresh like other reviews read... First spray was straight alcohol... Then a very weird tangy scent( not citrusy) then it turned to WINTERGREEN - yeah, like your grandpa's muscle rub Bengay. Then it settled into a nauseating vanilla that - hand to god smells exactly like DONNA KARAN CASHMERE MIST- what in the world?! My husband unbiasly smelled it and he was like "eww omg that's awful... It's like they poured two completely different random scents into one bottle and hoped it'd work out... Well it didn't... I'm sorry babe" I laughed bc it's a very accurate description... I would NOT recommend this one- not fresh, not clean, pretty gross actually.

This is a fairly decent aquatic, and one of the only ones I've tried that doesn't give me a headache. It seems to be missing that strong calone note that overtakes many aquatic fragrances. It does remind of the beach, it has that salty and sandy vibe, and it's not a tropical beach - this is more of an atlantic coastline beach on a windy day with cold ocean spray blowing in your face.

The scent is wonderful with being light and crisp! It reminds me of swimming in the ocean where you're getting close enough to the coastline but it's still deep enough to swim and you start to hit that frothy sea foam. The reason that I didn't rate it 5 stars is that the scent seems to wear off in a short time, however, the remedy is easy enough from just freshening it up with a spritz several times during the day.
