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

I picked one (Shaldan) up from a mall in Mulund. The mall only had the Rose flavour in stock. Since I liked it I bought one for a friend as well. Am now thinking of buying a couple more, one for the other car and one for another friend.

It is a good gift item too!

I purchased one during the Times Auto show in Pune from Reliance Automart stall for Rs. 200/- (@10% discount).

Its genuine. They had only 4 options. Lime/ Orange/ Rose and Squash.

I have purchase squash to find out what it is as I had already tried lime and Orange and Rose is not of my liking. I found it to be good and refreshing.

Still we get it bit costly. Last year I picked up pack of 2 in Dubai at carrefour for AED 16. that is approx Rs. 208. That is half the price we pay in India.

I picked up a pack of 8 My Shaldan fragrances from xstatic.concepts in ebay. I had a 5% off voucher and hence the cost of these tins came to 185/ only!

Canpush,
Have Reliance Automart started their stores in Pune other than their Auto show stint?
I tried hard to find one two months ago and finally bought it from ebay for Rs.189/-( + Rs.20/- courier).
Tried the lime one and liked it.

Maverick79,

Yes, Reliance Automart has started store in Pune. It is located at Mukundnagar on the main road itself, on left hand side as you go from Laxmi-Narayan junction.

I have not visited but the pamphlet they distributed in the exhibition states that address.

Yet to use, but would like to try My Shaldon Car Air Freshner, just checking ... noticed MyShaldan Apple (not the Neo one), is it genuine or the 04 options mentioned are the only ones available ?
Recently noticed this brand is available with some discounts at 199/- here at Pune.

@AvonA7,

Yes Apple is part of their regular fresheners. There are 7 options in My Shaldon as I know - Lime, Lemon, Orange, Squash, Rose, Apple, Herb and Sweet.. something (I do not remember exact name).

I have tried Lime, Lemon, Orange and now Squash. Next time I wish to try Apple or Herb if they are available.

They all are nice. I for the first time bought them in Dubai 8 years ago as they were not liquid and not readily available in India. I had bad experience with liquid as they need to be firmly planted in car else they spill and spoil. My previous car (Palio) did not had any flat surface on dashboard and once I tried Ambi pour which fell down and spoiled my carpet.

With My Shaldon, convenience is - you can place the can anywhere, even below the seat if no other place is available and there is no worry of spilling.

Got my Shaldan from Reliance Auto Mart for 200/- (Buy 3 get 1 free) So got 4 for INR 600, not bad. They have schemes like these on STP products also



Cheers

Just found a New Large Reliance Mart opened in Aundh. Got to check if its available in this new stores or not. So I can check here instead of going to Kharadi.

It's exactly one month after the receipt of my pack. Just found today that another half of the stuff is still present. Hope it goes for another month.

I personally feel it is quite decently priced. At 200 bucks, one can't ask for anything better and that too a pure "made in japan" product, which is like really rare.

Everything in Dubai is cheaper in India, thanks to the heavy custom duties and local taxes our country has, which are not there in Dubai. I think one should take that into account..

Unfortunately, all the original My Shaldan fragrances are fruity. - Lime, Lemon, Orange, Apple and Squash. They have Herb and Sweet Gardenia also but they are not readily available in India.

They have some Neo range that has Rose, etc. But I am doubtful if they are really coming from My Shaldan co. I have not used them.

Reliance Auto Mart or Big Bazzar are best location to buy authentic products. Last time I bought from Reliance they had a scheme - Buy 3 Get 1 free so effective cost was Rs. 167 per tin.

I picked up a couple of My Shaldan tins from Reliance Autozone - Lemon and Orange flavors. Costed me Rs 222/- each since there were no offers going on. Love the natural fragnance from them. I've been using Ambipur for many years now and this is a big leap for me.

I like the Squash flavour that I just bought from Hypercity. The prices sure have gone up and they are Rs.250/- a piece. The new flavours seem to be retailing for Rs.299/-.

I felt I had put up with Ambipur long enough - have found them to be pretty ineffective till I found, in a recent visit, most Singapore cab smelling quite nice and fresh. Most were using My Shaldan.

Guys,
i bought a my shaldan air freshner from reliance auto mall.I am not really concerned about its authenticity but the box and the tin says that it's flammable and not should protected from exceessive heat.

Now how safe is this to be kept inside a car knowing the summer temperatures these days.I have placed it inside the center console of my civic and have left the console lid partially opened exposing just a bit of the tin can

thanks
