    Hoppe's No. 9 not only does a good job on your guns, but makes a great after-shave lotion.

    Well, they're both synthetic (so no petroleum), but I find the smell of Militec-1 and Slip2000 to be the least offensive.

    Solvent - Hoppe's No. 9 the old favorite.

    Personally today -

    G96 Gun Treatment, "best" smell for both a Solvent and Gun oil . Great thing is the smell goes away quickly so no tell-tale for CCW or Hunting...

    Whatever works.

    I like Butch's gun oil - Nice, simple, and his solvent is great.

    And yeah, Butch is a real person.

    EEzox, but as becomes more of a dry lube, maybe it doesn't count. But it sure does smell....good.

    My wife is very sensitive to smells and has forbidden me from using Hoppe's #9 in the house. Break Free is pretty neutral-smelling.
