Good Product - BUT NOTE: Eau De Toilette vs. Eau De Parfum,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fcuk Him Eau de Toilette - 100 ml (Kitchen & Home)
The product was received very fast and looks legit. I compared it to originals on the official site, the packaging is of high quality etc. Now the issue I have, to no one’s fault but my own, I never knew the difference between Eau De Toilette and Eau De Parfum. Essentially the it means a difference is strength, in concentration. Eau De Toilette = a weaker smell than Eau De Parfum. I only figured this out while buying my girlfriend some recently. So this Eau De Toilette option is good if you need a subtely spray after shaving, after a shower, just before going out etc. but if you want it to last all day then go for a Eau De Parfum option.

There are eau de toilettes for women too. It means strength not gender, like he says.

Indeed, Joe and EMW are correct. To add to the topic, and for those who are interested, eau de cologne is the weakest/lightest fragrance with the lowest concentration of smelly stuff, then eau de toilette, then comes eau de parfum, and finally perfume is the strongest scent (and longest-lasting).
The gender for whom the scent was made is irrelevant; EDC and EDT are typically used for gentlemens' products because they're more subtle. It's entirely possible to buy a masculine perfume if you really wanted to. Generally speaking though, almost every mainstream gents' fragrance comes as an EDT or EDC, so buying an EDT won't leave you with a weak fragrance. It's quite normal.
