    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.

    Just a quick followup..................I've got about 10 or 11 coats on now. The finish luster has tapered off in improvement, but the wax is still working really well at keeping the firearm looking pristene, especially keeping fingerprints at bay on my stainless firearm. For the $$$$$$$$$$, and the fact that they don't really make any outrageous claims, and it does bring up luster a bit, and it definitely seems to protect, and the container will last forever, I would purchase it again. I put some on the wifey's LCP, just the slide. It seems to be protecting well and keeping it looking clean, even though the wifey handles it frequently, it stays looking clean. Just a follow up, no dog in the hunt.

    If it will make one's wife handle it more frequently, I know where I would try it out. Just sayin'
