This does not give any "scent" per se. But it does its job as advertised. My car smells fresh without smelling anything like Nicotine, Orange, Lime, grape etc.
The same ionizer comes at 2 different prices. One costs 299+51 shipping and another store sells at 655+55.

http://www.ebay.in/itm/Car-Auto-Air-...item417786d735

In both the cases the specs remain the same.

How much did you pay for this?

How long have you been using this?
I bought one a couple of months ago. It worked pretty well. As I said earlier, it won't give you any perfume. But will neutralize the odor inside.

Personally I loved the Jasmine fragrance ! Its awesome and found it way better than Areon Black Ice. The intensity is strong yet keeps the ambience pleasant.

The first link costs 299 + 51 for shipping. It is available in Blue only and seller has 97.2% feedback.

Second link, it costs 649 + free shipping and 3 color options available. Seller has 100% feedback. We bought from this guy.

One doubt, what difference does the color make?
Is there any difference between Blue & Red color ionizer?

Isn't high bucks spending here?! Smelling / perfuming job can be cost effective by many other means discussed in http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...me-refill.html

And spend bucks to buy lime, graps, orange, apple..

Would you choose your car colors or take up any color randomly from the yard?

It's common sense that color doesn't make any functional difference. It's my personal choice, I have ordered them in black. Blue and Red seem cheap.

@dhams: Did you try looking at what we are discussing? It's not the average perfume or deodorant, it's an ionizer. Watch few videos on YouTube to know how they work. And it is a long term investment. They do not need refills. As long as unit is functioning it will purify the air.

I am fed up with spending on perfumes! My last few packs were gels. Now I am wondering why not just keep an odonil inside the glove box!

Yes you can use. But also note, how would your car smell; like getting into a cleaned toilet

You get air freshening sprays from Odonil as well. SAMPLE

There is no difference between the colors. Just cosmetic. I had bought the 649 one.

My Shaldan doesn't seem to have their "Original" effect anymore or may be my nasal sensory glands are now immune to it. Earlier (I used to use Orange) I used to get a distinct Citrus tinge when I get into the car. Nowadays - None!

I first started with ambipur, but the smell was too strong and costly too. Then i switched to shaldan, though not cheap there are quite a few flavours which I felt mild and fresh.
Few months back while scouting for car freshner for my new duster I found Glade gel air freshner for Rs. 65. Surprised and purchased 2 lemon flavour. It is equivalent to shaldan but damn cheaper. I generally don't open the cover completely but keep it half open. It easily lasted for more than a month. Once it got over I went to purchase but no stock available for months. Yesterday I found the same in both big bazaar and mk retail in Bangalore. Took the last available 3 rose flavour from big bazaar and 2 lemon flavour from mk retail.

I would strongly recommend ppl to try this out. It's damn cheap.

I used Ambipur for 8+ years till I read an article that car perfumes are likely to be carcinogenic. I know that we are exposed to several other harmful elements during our normal day, but why stick with something that is purely discretionary? Subsequently, toyed with the idea of fresh flowers, but didn't quite get down to using them.

Even i want to go the DIY way. But my laziness is stopping me from venturing DIY way. Glade being an international brand, i assume it is better than shaldan and i found the scent to be mild which suits my preference. For now im sticking to glade and will prepare my own car freshener(have quite a few options and definitely herbal and not chemical based) soon.
