Mink oil and smell
I apologise if this has already been asked but I've done a search and could only find references to this but not a definite answer.
I have a perfecto jacket. Love it to bits. This year I got caught in a pretty big downpour and water soaked through, making the jacket a little stiffer after it dried so I decided it was time to condition the leather and give it some love.
Bought myself some Angelus branded mink oil. Packaging all says it's pure genuine mink oil, and it's sort of a white paste/waxy substance.
I worked it into the jacket quite well by following instructions I've read here and on the tin.
Then I started reading about reports of mink oil having a smell. The oil doesn't currently smell but from what I gather this will happen as it becomes rancid.
Can anyone tell me if this happens all the time or if it's just a matter of don't apply too much? I've already applied it into the jacket, worked it through, buffed off, and worked into a lot of the stitching. Now i'm worried that after a while it'll start stinking and I won't be able to wear it.
Someone suggest if this is just me being paranoid or if there's some merit to the worry?
I'm also based in Australia so I can't exactly send it to the US to clean professionally.
