Pate de Luxe

Pate  De Luxe wax polish is a unique traditional formulation. The finest  natural oils and waxes are used to achieve superior cleaning,  nourishing, and protection while producing a high-gloss shine to leather  goods.


Technical information

Our  famous Pate De Luxe wax polish combines a selection of premium oils and  waxes, including turpentine spirit (natural pine extract), beeswax,  carnauba wax, and six other waxes with nourishing, protecting, softening  and shining qualities.

Pate  De Luxe, one of Saphir Medaille d’Or’s most iconic products, is  specially formulated to obtain a ‘glacage’ or ‘mirror shine’ on the  toecap of your shoes.

The  pigments have been chosen for their colouring and penetrating  properties as well as their transparency. Pate De Luxe wax polish allows  you to obtain an incomparable patina by applying different shades of  colour to the leather surface.

Renowned  shoemakers use this formulation during the shoe finishing process so by  applying Pate De Luxe as part of your shoe care routine, you will help  prolong the optimal appearance of your shoes.

A beautiful pair of shoes deserves the finest treatment!


Suitable use

Pate De Luxe wax polish is ideal for use on smooth leather shoes or boots.


Main ingredients

The Pate De Luxe wax polish formula is composed of three main types of natural waxes:

– Animal: Beeswax

– Vegetable: Carnauba wax (from the leaves of a Brazilian palm tree)

– Mineral: Montan wax

Turpentine  spirit, which is extracted from pine trees grown in Southern Europe, is  another star ingredient of this special formula. It thoroughly  degreases the leather and enhances the absorption of the waxes. The  spirit evaporates, leaving the rich natural waxes to protect and shine.


Care instructions

  1. Brush the item to remove any dust or dirt.
  2. Apply  a small amount of Pate De Luxe with a cotton chamois cloth or the  Spreading Brush (Ref. 2631) to reach the welt seams and enable  nourishment and protection of this delicate area.
  3. Massage gently to allow Pate De Luxe to nourish and provide maximum protection to the leather.
  4. Apply one or two coats of Pate De Luxe to the entire shoe.
  5. Leave to dry for five minutes between coats.
  6. Gently polish the leather with a bristle brush or a wool glove.
  7. For  a high-gloss finish, apply additional coats to the toe and heel. Avoid  over-application to the vamp of the shoe because excessive movement can  crack the wax coating.


For further details, please refer to our How-To Guides.



1- Prepare your leather

If  your shoes are dirty or clogged with wax, silicone, or resin deposits,  clean the leather with Reno’Mat Leather Cleaner (ref. 0514) from the  SaphirBeaute du Cuir range.

If  your shoes are regularly cleaned and well maintained, we recommend  Renovateur Cream (ref. 1123), which moisturises and gently cleans the  leather pores without degrading the patina.

2- Nourish with Creme 1925

We  recommend applying Creme 1925 after treating the leather with Pate De  Luxe. Creme 1925 contains softer waxes and nourishing shea butter.

3- Glazing with Mirror Gloss (ref. 1013)

To  quickly obtain a ‘glacage’ or ‘mirror shine’, use Mirror Gloss. Mirror  Gloss contains naturally harder waxes necessary for achieving a  high-shine to leather shoes.
