Water based or Solvent based Sealer?

Dear forum,

I am tiling crackle subway tiles for my kitchen backsplash. I have gotten different advice about the sealer. I will do a test of a few tiles in all events. But, I want advice about sealer. Do I need to use a Solvent Based sealer over the crackle tiles, or is Water Based adequate? My tiles do absorb water drops after ten seconds. I would prefer to have a less "smelly" application, if possible as I do not have a kitchen window. (I assume that water based sealer is less intense?) I would seal the tiles after putting them on the mortar and then again after the grout, sealing the grout as well.

The tile is a crackle blue tile and the grout color is a very light grey color.

Any thoughts? Thanks
