I stripped 24 years worth of the original Cetol from my cockpit seats over the winter and refinished them with the Natural Teak Cetol. The last two weeks have been dedicated to the toe rail, I'm finally done stripping, sanding and 3 coats of the base ans 2 cots of the gloss. I'll be refinishing the rest of my teak once I'm in the water.
So far I'm very pleased with the look, at 8+ feet you really cant tell the difference between Epifanes and the natural Cetol. But at a closer look, you just don't get the "fill" that varnish gives you. But for toe rails, dorade boxes, hand rails, etc, it looks pretty much the same as varnish with a lot less effort. My cockpit table, companion way trim & washboards are all being redone with Epifanes varnish, as they get a much closer viewing.
Here's a photo I shot of my test sample, original Cetol vs. Cetol Natural:
