    Default You got to be kidding: Zlatan pour Homme by Zlatan Ibrahimovic

    Swedish football player Zlatan Ibrahimović will launch his debut fragrance in August; "Zlatan Pour Homme"


    Perfumer: Olivier Pescheux, who recently made Kouros Silver and Balmain Homme. "Zlatan" is said to be a woody-citrus scent.





    Per his twitter there's a pre-release event tomorrow at Collettes in Paris, in case there are any Ibra fans here, willing to go sniff & report.

    Interesting, thanks for sharing!

    If this one is as interesting as his football, I'd grab a bottle!

    Surely, that won't be the case.

    Celebrity fragrances are made to cash on anyone who is famous at the moment- would not be the first footballer with an own fragrance line

    Made me do a spit-take with my espresso, thanks for that.

    EDIT: Looking through his creations, a grand total of one sticks out to me as something I like (Vetyverio). He's also partially responsible for One Million. http://www.nstperfume.com/perfumers-...vier-pescheux/

    The packaging is really nice, the juice will probably be generic nonsense as the vast majority of contemporary perfumery - both celebrities and non-celebrities related. I don't really see the big deal. There's his name on the bottle and this makes both target audiences and expectations really clear, none is expecting a masterpiece and surely they aren't trying to sell it as such - I wish luxury niche brands were as honest to this extent.

    Some info in a Swedish magazine.
    http://rodeo.net/just-nu/2015/06/22/sa-doftar-zlatan/

    They list the scent pyramide as:
    Top notes - bergamot, grass and pepper
    Heart notes - white lavender, bay leaf and marine accord
    Basentes - different kinds of wood, leather

    The article also states that Zlatan himself was part of the project from the first ideas of the scent to the form of the flacon - he wanted the perfume to be both "sporty" and "sophisticated".

    I love Zlatan and will definetely give it a try!
