Leather conditioner?

Has anyone used BMWs leather conditioner? If so, how is it? Is it greasy? Does it smell good? I haven't done anything to my new leather yet but know I should get something on there. BMWs have a unique new car smell and I really would like to keep it. Or do you have any suggestions of another product that doesn't smell bad and is good to the leather?

I've been told "Leatherique" is one of the best stuff out in the market.

+1 on leatherique. The product last long and actually works, although it is quite pricey and time consuming~usually takes 5hrs to clean and condition(you need to let the cleaner penetrate into the leather)

Leatherique is the company's name and the products i was alluding to were Leatherique Rejuvenator Oil (conditioner) and Leatherique Prestine Clean (cleaner)...If you don't have the time, i strongly suggest Zaino z9 & z10

Liquid Leather is the best choice. Been using it for years now, it's regarded as the only one to use over here. Cleaner and conditioner.....

I read a review of a number of leather cleaners in a custom mag and Meguires cleaner/conditioner and have used it since. Came out better than a lot of expensive alternatives including Zymol

Works very well on lighter seats (As it cleans amazingly well)

I have always had black interiors and also think it's very good

If you wanna keep that new car smell I wouldn't use anything IF it is garage kept and out of the sun for the most part. If it is being hammered by the sun daily THEN I would use the stuff recommended by the guys above.
