Picked up a few for Rs 180/- each from this place at opera house. This is without asking for a discount or anything like that :

Sorry, I entered late. Are the fakes sold at a similar price as original?

There is a huge price variation on the originals it self a per the above posts. How can we predict about the duplicates' cost.
Will try one from D Mart today.
Was using Ambipure since long. Now its time to replace it with a good one.

Tried in D Mart at Pimpri, Pune. Not available.
Immediately went to Bigbazaar on the opp. side. Found only the 'neo' there. Costs Rs 249/- and no discounts.
Rose, Peach, Orange, My fragrance, Lime and Lemon are the fragrances available.
Need to scout for some other places now.

Thank you Ravi.
I was just trying to scout first physically and then, take the risk of buying online if its not available anywhere.
Will search the Reliance Autozone first and share the experience.

Never tried ebay earlier for electronics / perfumes and other such items before.

Btw, its a Lime flavour one. Going by the reviews here, will just pierce a couple of tiny holes to see how the fragrance wafts through the car.
Picked up a few from Big bazaar in Jaipur. Each costed me only Rs.70/- They were clearing the stock as the expiry was in July. Seem to be original as the aroma is very good.

What I do is that I dont open the tin foil cover full just about 1/4th. So the process of drying is slower and the can lasts a bit longer.

Thanks for the heads up guys..was thinking of buying one and this thread is a real eye opener. BTW, which fragrance to go for? I prefer something strong and natural.

Orange, Lime and Lemon are strong natural fragrances. Make sure you buy the regular Shaldan and not the Neo.

Well, I got a fake one from ebay & I left negative feedback for the seller. Thanks to this thread for helping me figure out that the actual shaldan product smells better.

Where can i get one of these in chennai?
How much will it cost?
Which flavor smells the best?
I have used a few car fresheners, but nothing to my liking.
I want something very mild. Is this the right choice?

Still trying to figure out the stores. Guys any info on the availability in Pimpri Chinchwad / Aundh in Pune, Pls let me know.
Looking for the older version of My Shaldan and not the new one.
