Default Which product for deep, warm gloss on white paint?

Hi guys. I've been experimenting with different sealants to see which would actually last on my cars for up to a year (as advertised). I've tried Chemical Guys *ducks* Jet Seal and, Griots *ducks again* All-in-One Sealant and Liquid Gloss Poly Wax and from my experience these have lasted about four months. I think this was how long Reflections Wax and Top Coat was lasting for me. Furthermore, Reflections gave my metallic white paint a nice deep gloss that I very much prefer over the shiny wet finish of the other brands.

I've loved Reflections from the start (so much so I endure the two-step process) but once my bottles run out, what is my Mothers alternative? Again, I don't like the shiny-wet look. Right now I'm thinking CG synthetic followed up with CG Pure Carnauba. A single-step solution would be even better. I've no experience with the paste waxes except for the discontinued FX. Please advise.

Thanks in advance...

If you've been using the Reflections system, the closest match to Reflections Car Wax is California Gold Synthetic Wax; for Reflections Top Coat use California Gold Pure Brazilian Carnauba Wax.

Thanks admin. Incidentally, I washed the car today with Carnauba Wash & Wax and totally got the desired effect. Paint was bright, flaky, and deep.
