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.

The seller contacted me and tried to convince me that the fake shaldan is as good as the real one. He also seems to have received another negative feedback on selling a fake shaldan product. He said that I could keep the fake one and that he would send across a genuine product. Also, he knows about this thread on teambhp.

My advice: stick to buying the product from reputed brick & mortar stores.

The shaldan neo is available at the EA big bazaar. I found it out today and purchased the orange fragrance for Rs 249/- .

Hi Maverick, you may try Siddhi Car Care and Decore on JM Road. Just yesterday only, I had been to them and noticed a range of these products on shelves.
Actually I haven't tried any air-fresheners, happened to read this thread just couple of days back and again seeing them in store reminded me of visiting this thread again!

Thank you iSpoke. I was correct in guessing it would be available in Siddhi, JM road. I was actually looking for a stores in and around PCMC or Aundh as going to JM road only for this doesn't make sense. Anyways, it seems to be the last and only option.
Before that, need to check with 'Car Art' near the Big Bazaar in Pimpri. I feel he too has good collection as I vaguely remember, when I was scouting for seat covers some 3 months back from him.

I received the genuine product from the seller yesterday. There is definitely a huge difference in the way the original smells as opposed to the duplicate.

I got mine at Haute Car Zone, OMR. Cost was Rs. 225. I personally like the Lime or Lemon flavors.

Got a peach (Neo) fragrance shaldan from Big bazar for 249 bucks.I checked it for the tell tale signs of a fake product mentioned here but was not able to spot any.The box had a hologram etc but the color of the same was slightly whitish which i am not sure is characterstic for the peach fragrance.I also found the fragrance to be slighlty mild which i don't mind and is just the way i want it.I kept it inside the center console of the civic and have wrapped a thin and transparent plastic bag around the tin with a small cut in it.

During my recent visit to Reliance Autozone Tolichowky Hyderabad, i saw a Good collection of Car Air Fresheners with them

For last few months I am using Dr. Marcus' "Ocean'' ( Rs 299/-) very pleasing fragrance
