I allow myself one every 11 years, which still isn't as good as Chuck Norris's record, but I'm working on it.
Rose, Iris, Cardamom, Patchouli and Sandalwood are the listed notes.
So far, about 20 minutes has passed and Shanti Shanti is still at moderate volume and semi-transparent. This is a sheer scent, but only in part. It has room to breathe, yet it still retains a certain denseness about it. The rose, iris and spice are still the players and its uncomplicated nature is welcome. I can clearly detect all of them and am impressed by how long its duration is.
It isn't until the extended drydown that a fuzzy, woody-patch makes a very, low key appearance. Shanti Shanti is already a linear fragrance and it's not hurt one way or the other by its inability to morph beyond the opening and heart. In this case, simplicity is the best course of action.
For those who enjoy rose, iris and cardamom, I suggest you take this for a ride. Sillage is modest and longevity is surprisingly good. Thumbs up from Aromi for Miller et Bertaux and his peaceful solution.
