Love the mellow and fresh smell of this one. Its one of those that I actually looked for the full sized version. Its now on my to buy later list. I feel like it is more of a spring or summer scent than for the fall or winter. Still lovely no the less.

Light and Clean
This is a very light and clean scent. In the bottle it has a more alcohol-ly smell, but sprayed it is very nice. Not the longest lasting fragrance though, which is why I didn't give it 5 Stars.

I loved the scent of this one, as I knew I would, and it was perfect for getting in the summer spirit. This scent reminds me 100% of sun, sand, beaches, and vacation vibes.

Perfect
This was exactly what I’ve been looking for. It’s a clean, fresh, ocean smell. I personally plan to wear it year round as an everyday scent but I think most people would classify it as a summer fragrance.

smelled like salt
I was really excited for this fragrance, but I honestly was so disappointed. I knew it was going to be a sea salty kind of smell, but this honestly just smells like cleaning supplies mixed with salt water. Very disspapointed. Wish I could return or exchange for more Versace Pour Homme

Definitely good for the beach
It’s got just the right notes of surf and sun. Barely smell the immortelle the lily of the valley is more prominent as an under note to the sand and ocean scents. I can’t honestly say I know was fresh seaweed smells like but it works with the combo. Lol. My only issue it wears off quite fast. I went through it quickly. Got plenty of compliments though. If your looking for a summer scent to smell like the beach but aren’t a fan of bergamot, this is your perfume.

Not as described
This is a very light floral scent that leans almost to a clean unisex scent. Not at all beachy. No sea salt, ocean smells. It did not last very long on me at all and I would not purchase or recommend.

Bad Undertone
Upon first smell it had a nice fresh beachy scent but when I put it on some subtle undertone came out that was a sharp dark nasty scent that really ruined it for me. I tried to give it to a friend but when she tried it on, it literlaly smelled like a garbage heap on her, whatever that scent was that came out on me totally took over on her. However...it smells good as a room spray which is what i've been using it for. In the air it maintains its light beachy salty scent and i appreciate that. Also, it lasts forever on your skin , i showered and it was still there.

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.

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 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.

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.
