It is a beautiful scent! I cannot stand floral scents they give me migraines so I love fruity scents and this is one I love! If you click on Rodrigo Flores Roux name highlighted in green you will learn he was the person who put this scent together and he also put together the scent of Clinique Happy and it will give you a list of all the other perfumes/colognes he has put together

I feel like this is trying to be like Clinique's Happy and falls short. It was too sporty for me. Citrus is one of my favorite scents and I this left much to be desired.

Funny, on me it smells just like my Tommy Freedom for Her. I was so relieved that I found a "new" source of a favorite scent,that will not break the bank. People with latex sensitivities are also sensitive to bananas--perhaps that is the problem some people are having with this formulation? It is heavy, then scent is overpowering as a spray, but the roll-on is much easier to contain. If you loved Freedom, try a roll on of Velocity.

absolutely horrible....the banana sweetness conquers your nose then the following citrus attacks every part of olfactory senses.. very offensive little fragrance. not even good as a room spray.

I remember when Mary Kay introduced this in the early 2000's, it was supposed to be a younger scent marketed at the 16 to 18 age group. More teeny bopper than young sophisticated woman.

I can't say I like the scent at all, it's HORRIBLE. It's one of those scents that a lot of ladies wear that are old enough to know better, yet are determined to wear it anyway. The smell is sharp, cloying, and lasts too long.
Supposedly it has notes of madarin and bannana in it, but all I detect is this sweet, cloying, sharpness that gives me a migraine.

Here is my history with this perfume. I bought it blind off of Ebay. I was so put off by the strong overly ripened banana note that I did not even want to try it on. Between baking banana bread for school bakes sales every other week (so it seemed) and spooning mashed bananas into the moving target in the high chair, I had enough with bananas already!

I tried to pass it off to friends but nobody wants a perfume that comes with a warning. So up on the shelf it went.

My baby girl is long out of the high chair. The world around is the target now. How she loves to explore! And she is very good at moving things and climbing on them to get what is out of reach.

How appropriate that my little monkey found the bananas. She sprayed it before I could take it away.

Really, not so bad as an air freshener at least. There was a bamboo note that emerged that was ...interesting. Hmmm. Ok,maybe it deserves a second chance, I thought.

So I am wearing it now and...I don't hate it. With summer approaching so many tropical scents are coming out. This one is tropical without being cliche. No coconuts,pineapple or margaritas with little umbrellas here. Banana with fresh cut bamboo. Unusual. I don't bake during the hot summer and everyone is on solids. I may learn to really like it.

I wore this in college. It is a clean citrus, an everyday scent for a younger crowd. I agree that there's nothing particularly special to it, but just being clean and non-offensive.

I bought this again after 10 years from the first time I had it as a gift. I loved it then and love it now. It is fresh, citrusy, floral, happy and gives me energy. I would stay with the nose in the bottle all day if I could! I don't smell any banana, just freshness and flowers.

LOVE this scent. It's light, sporty, energizing, and citrusy. Definitely a day scent, because the smell is remiscent of a walk on a brisk, Spring day while eating a tangerine. The clementine notes are dominant throughout the life of the perfume, and the scent in general is fruity and young.

The only downside is the lasting power: I wish it lasted longer. This is a common problem with Mary Kay and Avon scents: they're cheaper pricewise but also cheaply made. Expect to spritz on Velocity a few times throughout the day.

It's definitely a more young, vibrant day scent made for an active woman, similar to Adidas sport-type perfumes.

Nice alternative for people who don't like floral scents. It used to be my favorite scent when I was in middle school, but even now I still use it sometimes. It's very refreshing/energizing.

This one's a little bit less sweet than Clinique's Happy, but in this case, it's a good thing. If I want a citrus scent that's not quite so peppy, I wear this one, it's a bit more subtle.

I had used this in like 9th grade a friend had it for after gym class and I loved it, so I finally this week got my very own bottle, and it is every bit as fantastic as I remember! It is very citrus fruity, clean and rich smelling! it is very springy type, for daytime!! In my opinion this is a definite must have for spring/summer! and for the price, you cannot beat it!!

Sharp, youthful, sporty, sweet, bananay, unique, and I daresay, elegant! When I first got this, I didn't even bother using it because it smelled so sharp and green in the bottle. However, upon recently giving it another chance, I noticed that it works very well with my skin. Sharpness gone, comes an exotic almost floral fruity scent that gently stays close to the skin, I cannot stop sniffing my wrist!
