    Eau de parfum is stronger than eau de toilette. Usually companies put out a lighter version of their perfume (I personally like those better generally, and I'd recommend them for younger girls or women in their teens/early 20's).

    Pour l'homme means it's a men's cologne, and pour les femmes (if they even put that ever) means for women.

    I hope this helps!

    Eau de toilette is french for perfume as well as eau de parfum. Pour Homme means ' for man' in french. So that would be men's fragrance.
