Rocco’s West Hollywood Becomes Giant Ad for Genderless D by Diesel Fragrance

Rocco’s West Hollywood has transformed into a giant Diesel ad promoting the brand’s new D by Diesel fragrance billed as a “genderless Eau de Toilette.” Promo banners wrap around the entire restaurant and bar generating attention from community members and local business owners who question if a business can sell advertising space on a building–however, according to West Hollywood Code Enforcement, the signage is temporary and part of a special event permit with the city.

The D by Diesel event is taking place tonight at 8900 Santa Monica Boulevard. Details on event are seemingly hush-hush, which is complete contrast with the attention-grabbing advertising on the corner of Santa Monica and San Vicente Boulevards.

The D by Diesel is described as follows:

  • Classification: Eau de Toilette
  • Family: Fougère Ambery
  • Top notes – Ginger, Bergamot
  • Middle notes – Denim cotton accord, Lavander
  • Base notes – Vanilla, Ambery Woods
  • Genderless

The D by Diesel fragrance adapts and evolves with your skin. Immediately after nebulization, you feel the energy of spicy ginger and bergamot. After a few minutes, the fragrance delicately adapts to your skin through the freshness of the denim-cotton accord and the aromatic lavender of Provence. A few hours later, the fragrance takes on a more sensual, warmer facet, thanks to the Madagascar vanilla infusion.

good grief. We were all excited to see Rocco’s come to the neighborhood. Turns out, it was not a good thing.

Gross. Tacky. It’s an ad. Goes to show the city can be bought. They make a stink over the smallest things, but money talks. Also is Diesel still a thing. And don’t get me started on a genderless cologne. It’s a sign of the times.
