So here are is my feedback.

The Aeron Dream smells like green apples. It has a sort of fruity fragrance which is mild but noticeable inside the car.

I prefer the Aeron Wish any day over this one as the Wish smells like Cool Blue Aftershave with a fresh zing. So Aeron Wish it is next time.

Got the air freshener today. It looks authentic from the packaging and the gel content inside the tin can. The Squash gel odour smells pretty good, more like fresh lime but a fruity variant of it.

One of those rare things that is Made in Japan, is affordable, readily available and not something that is related to electronics!

Sorry to revive an old thread, but just came across this one. I used to try all sorts of air fresheners - Ambi Pure and a lot of other imported one's I picked up in supermarkets. But then I came across Godrej aer click - Musk (After Smoke).

Surprisingly it smells really great and fresh, even though I don't smoke in my car . A lot of friends too were impressed and bought it for their car. Worth a try.

I bought a combo offer from tradus.com
[FONT=&quot]Combo Of Areon Gel Wish and Areon Ken Lemon Air Freshener[/FONT]
I bought it on December 19th and to my surpise the Areon Gel Wish is still half left. It has really lasted a pretty long time.
The fragrance is quite strong and to my liking. My friends smoke in the car sometimes and this fragrance makes sure that the car does not smell.
Maybe anyone want to try it out. I will surely be ordering other fragrances from areon once my current batch runs out.

I seem to have a problem,I do not get the smell of any perfume that i keep in my car(Duster).I have tried different varieties including the ones on ac vents.

Not a problem with my smell sense since others too have said the same.

I recently came across a Gel air fresher from Odonil - yes the same brand that makes 'air freshers' for bathrooms. The Gel variety is very similar to the more expensive Gel car freshers available in the market. I tried the Citrus fragrance and loved it. The best part about it is that the lid is designed in such a way that you can screw/ unscrew it to reduce/ increase the opening and thus limit the fragrance. Works like a charm in the car...

Assuming that you are using this for sometime now, will the smell fizzle out after using for some days or does it stay as it was on day 1?

Hi Gannu_1,

Could you please post some more details? How many days it lasted? Where have you fixed it in car? Is there any adjustment to reduce/increase the fragrance?

I am planning to buy My Shaldan from eBay as want to try out something different than Ambi-pur.

Easily lasted me for close to 5 months and there was still some content left in the can when I disposed it off. The car had a nice citrus fragrance but I got bored of it eventually. There is a spring mechanism inside the can that pushes the contents upward as it gets consumed.

I had kept it in the round cubby hole ahead of the gear lever. To stop the can from rattling, I used some Scotch Brite pad:

Cut it to the shape of the can's bottom and kept it in the cubby hole.

Opted for another freshener this time - Dr. Marcus - Senso Deluxe and I concur with whatever he has to say:

I have a bottle of Cool Water and can confirm that the fragrance is similar.

I use the Glade gel freshener is the car. It gives a very fresh smell every time I enter the car. It is also relieves me of the worry of liquid freshner spoiling my interiors. It is also Value for money at ~ Rs. 50 approx.

I picked up these godrej musk soaked cardboard ones from an HP pump, 10 bucks a pop.
They were doing a pretty good job, till I left my car in the sun for about 10 hours.

I sneezed all the way back home.
Have you ever broken a bottle of perfume in your room, how it smells to high heaven for months?
Just like that, only instead of the bottle, it seemed like a barrel , and instead of the room, it seemed like my sinuses!

Just a small tip..

I keep few pieces of camphor , you get two types, one flat slab type & tablet type small ones. Flat ones are good for keeping inside the car.

Just make 3 small pieces & put it under front seat, middle row & boot space in the night while parking & when all the windows are closed. You would get fresh fragrance in the morning & you would have this fragrance through out the week.

Most people like it as it has natural fragrance (my experience...)

Regards
Ananth

Hi dass,

I do not buy it online. I tried to Google it but couldn't find any online store selling these. These are readily available at Spencer's modern format stores.
