I own three 'Parfumerie Particuliere' fragrances: 'Black Tar', 'Type Writer' and 'Pluie Noire' and love all three. Two others that have my interest are 'Berlin(h)er' and 'Belle Epoque', but there's hardly any reviews on these.

Anyone who tried/owns these can give me a description/review of these fragrances? Thanks a lot!

I own every release from this house. Belle Epoque is a nice woody amber with licorice and incense prominent and Berlin(h)er is an exquisite aromatic woody scent with a nice mint note. You should also consider the Saint Mariner.

Thanks hednic!

Belle Epoque: Is it very smoky, does it have a campfire vibe as I've read somewhere? Does it veer into animalic amber incense, as I don't get along with that very well?

Berlin(h)er: How strong is the cannabis note, is it very prominent? Same goes for the mint.

Just my observations on the above: The first is smoky but not overly and not animalic. The second the mint is more prominent than the cannabis, once again but not overly.

I wasn't familiar with this house, but I just looked them up. These seem like quite interesting compositions.

If you decide to purchase any more of them, please don't forget to share your feelings. I don't know any others aside from you and me that are personally familiar with this house. :)

So, how did you like them? I have Black Tar and Type Writer and I love them both. Pluie Noire sounds great, but I haven't had my nose on it yet. But I think a blind buy is possible here, though?
