French term or phrase: EDT FOOD
...acheteurs/utilisateurs d'EDT FOOD dont X et d'Y (X and Y being names of perfumes). EDT and FOOD appear in uppercase in the text. The context is men's eau de toilette which is probably what EDT stands for. I don't know if FOOD is a French acronym (not found on the Internet); can't imagine it's the English word used in this context.

Thanks a lot.

For the second term...auch!
Here's the links I found, I hope they help:

For the year-to-date period ended July 12, the women's fragrance category in food, drug and mass merchandise stores was up 11 percent to $395 million, according to Information Resources Inc.

This is a remarkable change from the past few years, when the category was down in double-digit increments. Although traditional eau de toilette fragrances are still soft for the year-to-date period, the non-traditional segment of women's fragrances-the lighter and misting fragrances-is up dramatically, and so is the emerging supporting segment of ancillary fragranced products, collections of products such as candles, potpourri, bar soaps, moisturizing oils and bath products.

So, no real answer but a hint. Something to do with oils, essential oils, costemics and parfums.
That's he best I could do. I hope it help...a little?

Good luck!
