  • Saphir – Made in France
  • An all-purpose shoe and leather care product, Saphir Creme Universelle – Leather Balm is not pigmented, and thus useful for all colors of shoes, boots, accessories, bags, clothing and furniture made of smooth or reptile leathers.
  • This Jojoba oil and beeswax formula gently cleans and conditions, while also protecting the leather from future harm.
  • First available in France in 1920, this liquid has earned its world-wide reputation for keeping fine leathers supple and glowing.

Personal recommendations from Evelyne S in the Mulberry Facebook group (thanks Evelyne for letting me quote you)

It makes the leather look and SMELL divine! I have been using it on my Balenciaga biker jacket, different brands of shoes and bags for at least 5 years, and it has never failed me!

I’ve used it on Mulberry, Balenciaga, Givenchy, Hermès… (yes, I’m also a bag freak). Planners, bags, shoes, pen pouches, jackets, the couch, watch straps, even my saddle… anything leather really!
Works like a charm everytime  Cleans, makes leather soft and shiny (after a good rub).
And the smell… I would drink the stuff if it wasn’t external use only! lol
Plus it’s cheap: 8 euros for 150 mL. I tried the Hermès one: way more expensive, and less effective
