Default re: My Shaldan Car Air Freshener - Genuine v/s Fake - You won't believe this!

This morning picked up my first bottle of My Shaldan Neo from Big Bazaar. They have increased the rates. Its now Rs.249 MRP and got 15% off on that.

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.

Where to keep it in an EECO?
My EECO does not have cup holders.
On the dashboard it will simply fade away due to harsh sunlight.

Keeping it on the dashboard is not a good idea as you rightly said the contents will evaporate very soon. Since you dont have any cupholders then only option left is to keep it below the driver or passenger seat or the side pockets ( if you have them).

Thanks Guys. Was using Ambi pur so long in both my cars.
Last weekend got the My Shaldan Neo from Bigbazaar. I have just installed it in my Scorpio as of now. Just love the fragrance. There is definitely loads of difference from my previous AmbiPur experience. First is that it is a fruity flavor, other is its pretty strong. Strong enough to neutralise food smell etc.
I have bought the Lemon flavored one now. Will try Lime or Orange next time

Im very disappointed with the NEO.
Neo doesn't last as long as the regular My Sheldon. I opened a new can of Neo just a week back and this is how it looks today. The Original Sheldon can is over 3 months old.
The Neo's fragrance is also not that strong and it doesn't have the plastic umbrella thingy that pushes the gel upwards once it starts to evaporate.

When I asked the difference between Neo and plain at the time of my purchase of 4 My Shaldan for Rs 663 at Reliance Autozone, Basaveswara Nagar, Bangalore, I was informed that Neo had milder fragrance as compared to the plain as some people prefer milder fragrance. Since I did not like Neo, I ended up buying plain.

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.

My Shaldan is available in ebay.in [MOD EDIT: Reports of these being FAKE are on pg7 of this thread]. Both My Shaldan and My Shaldan Neo are available in Reliance Autozone.

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.

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.
