The EDT is the best concentration. A brighter citrus top and lighter balance of carnation contribute strongly to that. I haven't tried the pure perfume but the EDP is far too heavy and perseverant. The EDT has a complex evolution with a powerful base that lasts forever. Outside of the minty bubblegum note in both, I can't compare it to either concentration of the men's version which is significantly inferior and saturated in creamy vanilla. I wear the women's on the back of my hand but that's about it. It's easily worn by a man (in small doses - same goes for the men's version) but I get far more pleasure from smelling it on my girlfriend. It's a hell of a fragrance.
