I agree with several comments. #1 you probably could use more coats because wipe on is very thin. So for better durability I would add two or three more. #2 The rub down of any finish will improve the results. I often use 0000 steel wool and a carnauba type paste wax as a final rub to remove any dust tips and to just burnish the finish to a satin texture. Wait at least 72 hours before applying the wax to give the finish time to cure

If it has been more than about 72 hours since the last top coat was applied I would lightly sand it with 320 sand paper before applying the next coat to make sure you get a good bond.
