Congrats on the first purchase!! I have an ardoise velo but city in ardoise is beautiful. Seriously, I'd strongly suggest that you use apple guard or miracle shield on it before you taking it out for serious use. My ardoise has yellowing problem, its really sad, unfortunately i had no experience with light color bal, didnt treat it at all and now its too late to revive its original color.I have a feeling there may be an addiction in the making after my first purchase
Ready for a reveal?
Thanks Magjes, you are like the guru of all things purse related! I was reading older posts about this issue but couldn't find anything recent so thanks for the tip. This was the most I've spent on a bag and I was looking at UV spray and a bunch of other stuff because I'm paranoid. But after your experience, I think I will just get the leather honey. I will have to read the techniques people use to apply. And thanks for the head's up on not using on RM. I wouldn't of guessed that! Sounds like it ruined one of your beautiesArdoise is a beautiful blue. Congrats!
I'd personally stay away from putting Apple products on a lighter blue bag. IMO it tends to make them yellow. I'm pretty sure that is what happened with my '09 Ciel bag that yellowed immediately upon purchase and even before being carried. I've have my Ardoise for 2 yrs. now and it has not yellowed. I have not put anything on it because of my past experience. If I ever do it will only be the Leather Honey like Honeylicious mentioned. (PS - do not put LH on RM bags ! - baaaad experience!)
Congratulations on your first Bal! I own a Day Anthracite, which is greyish/ blueish/greenish kind of color, and I have treated it with Leather Honey. It is a great product! Leather gets darker at first, but when it dries it looks wonderful! There are several threads about LH products, so definitely check those out.
Love your City!
