Thank you.

@MoosicPa Awesome Metta Catharina shoes and leather goods!

I noticed that you've used Saphir leather balm on your Russian reindeer leather. Does it alter the scent of the leather at all? My only experience with this leather is in the form of a watch strap I recently commissioned. My favorite aspect of the leather was unexpectedly its great smell, which I hope would not be suppressed down the road when the leather needs to be conditioned.

No the Saphir balm does not suppress the smell of the birch, and there is a leather wax with the birch scent if you wanted to pursue. However, the odor does start to dissipate over time. It is always there to an extent, but after a couple of years it becomes less noticeable. The oldest pair of Russian Leather shoes I have the birch scent is hardly noticeable.

Thanks for the response. I did notice that the scent from my strap is not as strong as when I first received it, so I guess I should expect it to dissipate over time. It's great while it lasts though.
