Based on Ghodlur's comment, picked up one from Home Town in Vikhroli.
MRP 225. Got it for Rs 187, 25% off.

Was slightly confused when I bought it, as the can said "My Shaldan Neo". Is that a diff product range?

Opened it up today and the color is perfect green (Lime). But the quantity seemed less. The can was filled till around 60% of the space (unlike the picture shown in the first post which was filled to the brim.)

I got this from the Hyundai showroom when I purchased my car a month back. He said that it would last 45 days easily.

But, it certainly did not. I hardly notice the smell off late.

I put near the gear rod and kept it open all the time.

Lesson Learned: Do NOT expose it to direct sunlight and put it in the glove box or something when you're leaving your car for long in the open air parking (for ex office, etc). It will die in less than a month.

At Reliance Auto Gurgaon, I picked three for myself and got a 25% discount. Net price is around 167 bucks.

I think gurgaon folks can get them cheap.

You picked it from Reliance Auto, Ambience Mall? And which one did you buy? The My Shaldan Neo or normal one?

Yupp ! The Ambience Mall.

I believe the NEO is the one with the stand. That one was actually for the same price but the quantity seemed to be less. So bought the normal ones.

Also they suggested me to put it under the seat, to elongate the life. Makes sense I guess.

But how do you place it under the seat? Won't it topple off while driving? Or do they come with something that sticks their base?

Spar Mantri mall has a sale on car perfumes. I picked up Myshaldan Neo for 199. MRP 249.

Both the Neo and regular My Shaldan was on sale for 199. The Neo comes in a smaller tin.

I bought the My Shaldan Orange from TVS Car Plus store for Rs. 215/-. I have placed it right under the steering in my Wagon R (next to the cup older over there). I got it stuck using double sided tape. A little bit of sunlight still enters in my car though. Looking for more suitable places to place the perfume.

PS: I found the Orange to be fine and not really strong. I will try lime next time. How is the apple one?

I bought the Lime and orange, both are fine. But I prefer the Lime over the orange.

Maverick, you bought the Neo or the regular one?

I bought the regular. Neo was also there but only in apple flavor and it looked smaller. Is the stand of any use?

Well it does make it look a lot cooler thats it. The Stand is purely for show. Next time I pick the regular ones over the NEO. Yeah the NEO are much smaller.

Been using the Orange flavour in my car. The fragrance is soothing, and nothing extreme. Already seems to be lasting a lot longer than any of the Ambipur frangrances i have used in the past.

Have another can of the lime flavor with me. Will try that after the orange is done with.
