Hi, can you suggesting tutorials on how to create a whispery smoke like the patronus trails here - using CC particle world/particular?

Personally that doesn't look like smoke, but more like some image planes with fast noise and a seethe. Having said that, there are several smoke presets that come with particular, and you can start with one of those and tweak it until it looks the way you want. Look in the preset drop down. If you don't see an animation presets drop down, this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xWwfsrYTCkQ will show you how to make it appear.

Better would be to use a smoke simulator from a 3d application. But that is a bit more involved.
