Macaroon from Saronno
It begins with a well reproduced lavender, which after about ten seconds is accompanied by an almondy, alcoholic, slightly sweetened aroma. As the lavender wears off, the amaretto note increases in intensity. During that time when they feel
together, they form a beautiful agreement. This amaretto note isn't bad at all. After 10 minutes the "essence" of amaretto tends to fade, leaving only the sugar to integrate with the central accord which opens with a large geranium followed by sage. With an increasingly prominent sage, a waning geranium and icing sugar, we continue for at least 4 hours. At this point, white musk together with wood takes the place of geranium and sage, but the artificial sweetening effect does not disappear. The beginning of the fragrance is particularly good, the rest isn't that great, that sugar that already creeps in between the central notes shouldn't have been there.

Superb "fougere meets amaretto" concept
Milano Fragranze Diurno’s description of “a timeless fougere with a subtle hint of amaretto” feels highly accurate, the mix featuring the amaretto itself, then lavender, geranium, sage, and cedar. So it has the spicy/herbal/woody center with the fougere’s signature, lavender, and then amaretto, which feels like the most substantial single note, to make the fragrance into something different and new. It’s instantly impression-making, with some element of freshness and a classic fougere that make it seem universal, but at the same with an idiosyncratic amaretto note that’s bound to delight some (like me) though perhaps confound others who are less keen on the almond liqueur, despite the abundant Disaronno TV ads of the 2000s.

For me, Diurno an instant love, the sharp/boozy/sweet aspect of the amaretto being a playful contrast to the more centered and traditional fougere elements, not quite opposites at play, but still a neat blend of elements that I hadn’t previously considered as eligible companions. I’m really impressed with it, as it’s among my favorites I’ve tried of the house to this point. My impression of the Milano Fragranze line is that it’s a little more accessible than the perhaps more artistic Masque Milano line that preceded it, but more to come on that as I continue to sample the blues, as I’m calling them.

Like the rest of the Milano Fragranze line, Diurno is very reasonably priced at $135 for 100ml, in EDP concentration, and is sold in the US at beloved boutiques like my own local Perfumology.

A classic fougere made multi-dimensional and warm with the addition of amaretto, which is really delightful.
