Wow. I need to give that stuff a try. Doesn’t look like it darkened the leather at all!
Zero darkening on both this pair and the Natty indy's the other day, did help make some of the scrapes and scuff marks almost vanish. Area's that were darkened due to wear, stayed that way, so it didn't lighten the boots up either. Smells nice to me as well. I have used Bick4, VSC, Neatsfoot oil in the past on lighter CXL and honestly this stuff works better.

+1 on this - Saphir makes amazing conditioners.
