I use Griot's Garage leather care. It does a good job cleaning, protecting and giving you that "new leather" smell. Note that I don't have experience with other products to compare but Griot's is doing what I want so I don't really feel motivated to explore.

Leather masters for that 1-2 time a year cleaning. I'm still on the hunt for an everyday cleaner
