Comptoir Sud Pacifique Aqua Motu - Thoughts, Competitors, EDT vs EDP, etc?

Hey everyone,

I'm looking for a suitable fragrance for the upcoming summer. I want a beachy, oceanic, marine fragrance - no coconut or suntan lotion, just pure sea breeze and sand. After doing my research, Aqua Motu seems as close as I'm going to get.

I already know everybody is going to recommend Heeley's Sel Marin, and believe me, I would love to try it. It's a little out of my price range right now (I'm looking into getting a bottle of Acier Aluminum as well) and lots of criticisms of poor performance keep me away from this one. Still, if Aqua Motu disappoints me, this will be next on my list to try.

Profumum Roma's Acqua di Sale is also way too expensive and mentions of a licorice note completely turn me off. CB I Hate Perfume's Mr. Hulot's Holiday and Eternal Return are more than I'd like to spend but I'll probably give them a shot after Sel Marin. I already own Bvlgari Aqva. Aqva Marine's drydown is too fresh and clean to be the ocean (I get mostly cucumber). Montale's Sandflowers is one I have to get my nose on, but I haven't been a huge fan of the other Montales I've tried. I can't be bothered to hunt down a vintage bottle of Kenzo Pour Homme unless there are overwhelming recommendations for it. Acqua di Gio Essenza is one I've recently tried that I absolutely love, but it isn't really the ocean... I will probably get this if I don't find any oceanic fragrances I really like. Am I missing any big ones?

So CSP Aqua Motu. Relatively cheap, supposed to have an authentic beachy vibe, and readily available. What do you think of it? Has anybody tried both the EDT and EDP? The biggest reason I am starting this thread is because I haven't seen any discussion around the EDP on here and I'm really curious if it's an improvement performance/scent wise. Also, has anybody tried the original Motu, and if so, is it noticeably better than the current Aqua Motu?

Ultimately I'll end up ordering samples, I'd just like to see some discussion on a fragrance I have very high hopes for.

Thanks everyone.
