Viva La Juicy Bowdacious:
Cheeky, playful and forever fantastic. Viva La Juicy Bowdacious invites you into a world of luxe, pink, over-the-top fantasy wrapped in a big pink bow! A fragrance that splashes notes of Italian mandarin, Williams pear and honeydew with the solar vibrancy of the tiare flower, ending with the warm, creamy addiction of tonka bean and coconut milk.
Bowdacious comes in a bottle that looks a lot like other Viva La Juicy fragrances, rectangular with a version of their rope crest on it. What makes it unique is the big pink metal bow on the lid and smaller ones on each side of the bottle. There is also a pink trim along the bottom of the bottle that connects to the smaller bows. It is bright, it is flashy but it also is super cute. 
On to the notes.
Top Notes: Willliams Pear, Honeydew, Italian Mandarin
Middle Notes: Tiare Flower NP, Ginger Lily, Jasmine Sambac
Base Notes: Coconut Milk, Driftwood, Tonka Wood

For the scent, the first thing that hits me is the coconut. It smells like real coconut, fresh and tropical. Then once it settles in, I can smell the fruity blend of pear, honeydew and mandarin mixed together. Finally, I catch the floral notes.

Overall the scent is fresh and a great mix of tropical, fruity and floral that is fresh and fruity all at once. I really enjoy scents like this, they are fun but more complex and mature than a lot of other scents like it (in other words, it is more complex and mature than the other fun scents from my youth). 
Oui Juicy Couture
This vibrantly rich women's perfume will have you saying Oui! to a burst of nostalgic pops providing mouthwatering freshness. Whether you're looking for your new signature scent or the perfect gift, Oui Juicy Couture will captivate and fascinate with its exclusive fragrance.
Oui comes in a fantastic bottle that has a red square with a pink square stacked on top of it in the style of a classic perfume decanter design. It also features a dangling charm that bears the perfumes name that hangs from a metal decorative disc. I have a 100ml bottle, so it is a bit larger, but the bottle still feels quite substantial and sturdy. 

Let's talk scent now. Here are the notes. 
Top Notes: Watermelon, Acai Tea Natureprint, Pear Infusion
Middle Notes: Jasmine Absolute, Wild Tuberose, Dewy Honeysuckle Natureprint
Base Notes: Techno Woods, Amber Resins, Captive Musks

This scent is definitely more mature than the Bowdacous or any of the Viva La Juicy scents I have previously smelt (which is most likely why it isn't a Viva La Juicy scent). That being said it also isn't too mature, it is a great blend of floral and fruit that is just complex enough, making it a great scent for anyone looking for something fruity but a bit more or something floral but with a hint of fruit to it.

It has a crisp fruity and floral scent that lingers all day while not being over the top. The watermelon gives it a nice fruity summer lightness while the tea and florals make it more complex and intriguing. I have a hard time differentiating within it, it just smells like a really nice blend. All I know is that I really like it.

Overall I really am enjoying both Oui and Bowdacious, they are fun and really suit my perfume styles while being completely different. Bowdacious suits my more fun and fruity days while still being complex and bit more age-appropriate for me. While Oui is a bit more floral while still retaining a fruity essence to it, all the while being a scent I have no problem wearing day in and day out.
