Swedish and Paris Saint-Germain star revealed that he was scheduled to start selling his own eponymous fragrance on Tuesday, in a message to fans on Twitter.
"A sneak preview of something I've been working on for the past 2 years," the star wrote.
"Something I'm very proud of," the PSG added above a picture of the logo for "Zlatan Ibrahimovic Parfums": a fish and a feather -- with the initials M and V in the feather, for his sons Maximilian and Vincent -- forming a circle.
The fish and feather are copies of two of Ibrahimovic's tattoos.

"The brand has one foot in the perfume capital of Paris and the other in his native country Sweden," a press release added.
But the public relations firm handling the launch refused to provide any other details, saying more information would be released "later in June."
Ibrahimovic will not be the first footballer to develop a fragrance: both David Beckham and Cristian Ronaldo already have their own.
The striker will be welcoming some positive PR after spending the past few days dismissing rumours linking him with a move from his club side Paris Saint-Germain to Italian team AC Milan.
"I am happy at PSG, I don't know where these stories are coming from," he told a press conference before Sweden's European Championship qualifier against Montenegro on Sunday.
The match ended 3-1, with two goals coming from the Malmö-born player.
