    Reading the reviews several mention the strong odor with the Renaissance wax. Is it really that bad or just a bunch of girlymen?

    Since it's made from crude, it does have a petroleum smell. After it's wiped off, it has a slight odor which dissapates. I applied it using my finger. Regular soap and water took the smell away from my finger rather quickly. Not something like Hoppes which smells for days.

    Kind of what I figured, probably not near as bad as they lead one to believe.
    My wife complains when I do a lot of gun cleaning and the Hoppe's and such but I think she just welcomes the chance to complain. It's not really that bad.

    Used to read a gun-totin’ lady from Pennsylvania on a Las Vegas social board who loved to use Hoppe’s #9, and occasionally would dab a bit on her neck like perfume. Her hubby strongly approved.

    Out of all the gun cleaners out there, Hoppes is still my go to cleaner, for about 50+ years now. I know the wifey knows how to clean her firearm, but I usually do it for her so her hands don't smell too bad. She has clients who probably wouldn't go for it.

    I do that bit on the neck thing too. So far no complaints.

    I've put a couple more coats on and it does seem to be getting a more noticeable luster, and the small light scratches are slowly disappearing...…………………………..

    I put the sixth coat on today. Getting a nice luster, slowly, and I've noticed that the turn line is fading.
