"Perfume" is the second single from Spears' latest album "Britney Jean." She penned the ballad with singer-songwriter Sia. On the synth-pop track, Spears sings about being paranoid that her boyfriend may be seeing another woman so she marks him with her fragrance.
The tables seem to turn in the "Perfume" music video. The clip was directed by Joseph Khan, the man behind Spears' classic clips like "Womanizer" and "Toxic." This time, the special effects are left out for something more organic and gritty. Spears lays with her lover in a dirty hotel and she rightfully gets some product placement in, spritzing herself with an Elizabeth Arden perfume to mark her territory. The guy gets awfully cozy with Spears and another woman. As the video progresses, it becomes clear who was the guy's actual girlfriend and who was the other woman. Khan did a great job capturing the heartbreaking feeling behind Spears' "Perfume" song.
"Perfume" has so far peaked at no. 76 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart. Spears' "Britney Jean" album was released on Dec. 3.
