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.

Is the stuff inside My Shaldan supposed to be solid ?

I bought one today, and it's genuine alright, but it's solid. It was manufactured in 2009, and expires in June 2011.

Also, I kept it on my dining table all night, and there was no difference in how the area smelled in the morning. The scent was noticeable only if I held the can close to my nose. Do you think there's something wrong with it ?

^^It is solid but semi-solid gel kinds. And I think it will work best in closed enclosures and not at open place.

I used 'My Shaldan' later shifted to Ambi Pur as it was lasting so early. My Shaldan is still the best compared to Ambi Pur. But how to keep it for long lasting? Should I open the can only 1/4 ? The problem is it dries quickly.

I used Plastic wrap covered it and made 3 tiny holes at the top. This is enough to make the car smell good at the same time keeps the My Shaldan can fresh.

Just got the second can of My Shaldan Orange yesterday. Earlier I have tired almost all the fragnances of Ambipur which I feel are useless and last not more than 2 weeks on an average.

What I feel about the umbrella thing at the bottom is that as the gel starts to evaporate, the umbrella thing pushes it upwards. At least that is what I noticed in my previous can.

I am planning to check out some other car perfume once the orange one is over. Kindly suggest mild flavoured onces which can be purchased from either big bazar or star bazar.

Cheers!

Again saw some more duplicate varieties of My Shaldan. This time the Chinese guys have got smarter and have corrected the spelling mistakes highlighted in my first post. But as they say, a thief will always leave some trace, still there are some mistakes, which help us to identify. Please see below -

Got myself a MY SHALDON SQUASH for 200 bucks. Checked it properly and it's not fake. Thanks for the tips. They got it fixed on my dash board with the both side tape.

With tbhp's excellent google'abiltiy I would not be surprised if the next batch came with the exact similar fonts and labels.
