Leather Cleaner and Protector suggestions

Hi folks, I hope you are all keeping well? I am on the look out for a new Leather Cleaner and Protector for my Audi Leather. Its in good/new condition, any suggestions that you would recommend ? I have used Dr leather cleaner and Leather Repair company products before.
Apart from cleaning and protecting, I would like it to leave a matt finish after and wouldnt mind a nice leather smell from it, but thats not essential.

Thanks in advance

I'm a bit of a carpro fanboi, but I like carpro inside and a boars hair brush, to clean leather (wipe off with a. damp cloth after). and seal the leather with carpro leather. I'm really pleased with this combo on both my Audi's though I will say the ceramic coating is a bit grippy. But it keeps things mint.

Audi leather, as with most modern cars leather are clear coated, so there is no need to condition as nothing actually penetrates, it just dresses over and wears off in time. So just a good cleaner and some kind of sealer is what you will want. You can always dress over it if you want a bit of shine and slickness on occasion.

The notion is clean then protect, “as conditioner will in itself attracts dirt”

User and fan yourself ? I've never quite found 'the one' as yet.

Wasn't hugely impressed with Gtechniq stuff. Dodo juice cleaner is good - protector not so much. Currently using Gyeon protector version - and its ok imo....thats all.

About all i have left is this; and the Dr Leather versions of cleaner and dye block / protector. Infact i was pretty much about to buy the Dr Leather products until i saw your post / went onto the LTT website ! Looks good.......

Thanks all for your suggestions, I did like the Dr Leather ckeaners, but wasnt sure about the dye blocker as a protector if that makes sense ?

I’m on angelwax cleaner and protector at the minute, it’s reasonably priced and does the job.

Been a happy Dr Leather wipes user for years.
Little bit often to keep on top of my leather.
A quick going over with Dr Leather today after bringing my car back from the garage.
Wasn't really dirty as it was only done 2 weeks ago, but noticed a reduction in sheen after using the wipes.
I gently wipe with damp MF after, and then dry with another to remove any dissolved dirt left.
I
My seats are 15 years old and I've never used a protector.
Just clean regular and protect from UV using a sun shade in the window......even in winter
