Bought it from Auto Fusion (Thoqueer), Koramangala. This is near the Legends of Rock pub. He had other varieties too and My Shaldan, some other ones similar to My Shaldan tins and various imported car perfumes.

I bought Areon Passion from ebay. It smells like candy and I don't like it. Have kept it in the boot of the Swift and it is strong.

Got it from ebay and cost me 260 bucks including shipping. Think I should have gone the citrus way.

Senso gel is available on flipkart and snapdeal.

EDIT: Got my answer on My Shaldan vs Areon from post 351 on the last page. How is Senso vs others?

That was me I guess (EDIT: BHPian rubicon too). So you mean that the Areon and others are milder than the Glade? Then I should stick to Glade itself. I need that much strength, but the note is not breathtaking that was why I thought about a change.

.
I'd say Areon is at least better than my shaldan as in its stronger so in someway I feel is paisa vasool as you can always smell the product in case of Areon.

I've not tried senso yet. The godrej aer ones are good too. I love the smell of the blue one.

Hi, I'm a loyal Shaldan user, but of late, I feel somehow that either I'm buying fakes ones (unlikely) or perhaps my brain has got used to the smell - becomes noticeably weaker after two weeks or more.

Does the Senso Deluxe fit into a standard cup holder? If it doesn't, it'll be a deal breaker..

I honestly feel My Shaldan is natural and its Japanese and thats why miles ahead of Areon or Godrej ! I think with so many chemicals around us, sticking to natural products as far as possible is wiser...These fragrances enter our body and thats how we smell them..Synthetic fragrances (especially stronger ones) contain phthalates which harm our immune system (Pls google and check).

The trick to have it last longer is not to open the aluminium can lid entirely but only open it partly and cover with its plastic lid. Works well for me

The trick to feel the fragrance longer is to keep changing the fragrance in case of My Shaldan (Lemon, Lime, Orange etc.) as our body and senses get immune to a particular fragrance if used in succession.

^^ What about all other materials within the car then?

For your logic to be good enough, there must be no dashboard plastics, etc, which emit even more harmful carcinogenic odorless gases.

I have used My Shalden and Areon Ken and I prefer the latter though it's synthetic and not fruity.

I have been using those Tropi Cool sprays that are supposedly made from natural products. Im quite happy with it as a singe spritz in the vents lasts for a couple of days.

Personally prefer potpourri - if you can't easily buy some, do this...
Leave some rose petals (or the petals of any other aromatic garden flower) to dry, wrap in a small muslin bag, and hang it to your rear view mirror.
Or
If you like to get the fresh stuff, put some fresh flowers on the rear parcel tray and on the dash - that should be sufficient to keep the car smelling nice at least for a few hours.
Never really liked the synthetic stuff...after a while one can't "smell" them anymore - either because our olfactory senses have got used to them or because they have simply evaporated.

Bought about 50 gm of coffee beans and wrapped a handful in a tissue and placed them in the car . The smell is excellent and all this at a very very low cost. 18 rupees for 50 gm of coffee beans

Definitely a must try if you like the smell of coffee.
