Regarding safety of Limonene please read this:

Limonene and its oxidation products are skin and respiratory irritants, and limonene-1,2-oxide (formed by aerial oxidation) is a known skin sensitizer. Most reported cases of irritation have involved long-term industrial exposure to the pure compound, e.g. during degreasing or the preparation of paints. However, a study of patients presenting dermatitis showed that 3% were sensitized to limonene

Actually almost all citrus gel-based perfumes use D-Limonene as the active ingredient for producing the citrus fragrance, regardless of brand.

Air Fresheners when expired may tend to contaminate and some ingredients (especially essential oils) may degenerate to release harmful or toxic substances. I think its best to stay away.
Yes, I agree its better to be on the safer side and discard any expired perfumes.

On a somewhat related note, I was going through an article on the net some weeks back about manufacturing of perfumes. Apparently, they do a lot of tests before launching perfumes, on the chemical reactions after expiry time has elapsed. There are strict regulations in place to ensure that expired perfumes (due to negligent usage by the owner beyond expiry date) do NOT emit toxic wastes. After expiry, chemical reactions do take place, they decompose and produce foul odour but it is not toxic just by inhaling. The perfumes are supposed to be tested for this.

Limonene is an amazing natural compound found in lemon and orange peels. It has potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, offers assistance for a variety of metabolic and health problems, has anti-cancer properties, and even helps with weight management.

As a health compound, it has shown a wonderful ability to help with a variety of health issues including improving indigestion, acid reflux, and sluggish bowel. It is a unique fat cleanser and helps clear cholesterol sludge including the sludge in the gall bladder that can form stones. Another aspect of cleansing assistance is that it also helps liver detoxification enzymes. Its calming properties help settle anxiety and therefore can be used as a natural sleep aid. It helps reduce appetite and improve metabolism, making it one more nutrient to assist with healthy weight management. And of great importance, it is a superior nutrient for breast cancer prevention.

My car smells amazing!
I've been using the Ambi-Pur's Set&Refresh for about 2 years now and found it incredible
It's a room freshener, but I use it in the car; It has no side effects, neither on adults, nor the kids.
Here's the flavor that I use in my car and this is how I use it:

It is available online and in most of grocery shops too.

I use a good double sided tape and have mounted it in the middle of the car.
How does your car smell-ambipur_carlocation_1.jpg

The scent is housed inside of this membrane which is sitting into the outer bracket. The moment the outer bracket is set with the membrane and set to lock by pulling upwards, there are a few holes created inside the membrane, and ergo the fragrance starts kicking in.

The fragrance lasts easily for about 110 to 120 days.
I do not discard the refill as soon as the scent is empty.
Rather keep it until the empty refill stops emitting the fragrance after a few more days

I purchased this Dr.Marcus Senso Deluxe Ocean fragrance. The bottle looks really good and in my experience, the fragrance lasts about 2 months. Got this online. The fragrance isn't too strong though. You won't be hit with a blast of fragrance as soon as you open the door, but once seated, it's a soothing and calming scent.

Senso Deluxe Ocean is one of the my all time fav, been using it for almost 3 years. Recently shifted to Areon KEN Black, but not much impressed with it. Will again shift back to Senso.

I've been trying to obtain My Shaldan gel recently without success. Here in Baner, Pune, they appear to be stocking just the Areon wish gel. Any pointers where I can get it in the vicinity of Baner, Pune or in Mulund, Mumbai?

I have seen Carax, Baner stocking My Shaldan.
Why not purchase online where it is readily available? Snapdeal, Flipkart are reliable and they do home delivery in couple of days.

Where do you buy this? I found that Flipkart has it at 395 + 40 for shipping and eBay has it at 395+ 50 for shipping. Both for 80gm pack.

However, Snapdeal has it 340 with free shipping for 50ml pack. (vs grams listed in other two websites)

This is the one I picked up. This seller on ebay is very reputed and I've purchased many products from him.
eBay - Dr Marcus Senso

There is an option on snapdeal to check if the product can be delivered to pin code location. The seller on snapdeal for this product, "Genuine Car Accessories", does not ship liquid/gel products to hyderabad. So even though the price is lower, I could not purchase from snapdeal as the seller would not ship it.

Hope this helps,
ArvindYoga

Thanks. Its the same seller I was refering to in ebay. I guess he's the one selling on Flipkart too (CarStudio).

I was little confused because ebay and Flipkart listed it as 80grams where as the Snapdeal person had it as 50ml.

And you're right. The one on Snapdeal cannot be delivered to Bangalore either!

I'm a big fan of Little Trees! Each one of the trees lasts me about 3-4 months. I spray the interiors with Meguiar's Odour Eliminator once in two weeks.

Everytime someone gets in my car, the first thing they say is how good my car smells and ask me what I use brings a big grin on my face

Have you tried Areon Ken Black Crystal? The fragrance is quite subtle and in my case it lasted for more than two months. I'm currently using Areon Wish (gel based) but the effectiveness is not as good as Black Crystal (jute based).

Planning to try Little Trees next. According to Amazon.com reviews, Black Ice, Blackberry Clove, Vanilla, Black Forest etc. seems to be decent. Which all flavours did you try and found effective? And you purchase them online?
