I have spent a lot of time running a bar of wax over my Belstaff jacket. No longer, now I use spray on Nikwax.
Every now and then my waxed cotton jacket needs a touch up. Nikwax is about 1000x easier to use than a solid or cream wax. You liberally spray this on, rub it in and let it dry. I find it has a pleasant, not noxious scent.

California's recent rains show this stuff not only goes on easy, but works well.
