Britney continues to reign over all the tempos in her “Work Bitch” follow-up.
Late on Sunday night, Britney Spears released “Perfume,” the second single off of Britney Jean (out Dec. 3) and a fragile, emotive entry into the Ballad-ney canon. Unlike its predecessor, the steely, no-nonsense “Work B**ch,” this downtempo number is so vulnerable and raw that it’s basically Brit-Brit tartare.
In the chorus, Ms. Britney sings: “And while I wait, I put on my perfume/ Yeah, I want it all over you/ I gotta mark my territory.” So whaddya say, #BritneyArmy? Let’s douse ourselves in as much Eau de Bretagne as humanly possible by reliving her greatest fragrance commercials. Umm, actually that wasn’t a request. We know that you choose your own destiny and all, but that was an order.
1.) Britney’s 2010 commercial for “Radiance” gave us the iconic line: “I choose my own destiny.”
Though dressed like “Lucky,” this is a story about a girl named “Autonomy.”
Listen to Britney Spears’ “Perfume” after the jump.
2.) Channeling her inner Soviet-ney, 2005’s “Fantasy” was a delightful historical rewrite of the Onyx Hotel Tour/ Kevin Federline era.

3.) Britney’s 2004 clip for “Curious” features passionate embraces, smoldering stares, and frenetically sexy metaphorical stock footage.
Do you dare?
Oh, and the possible allusion to Elizabeth Taylor in “Cleopatra”? Pure #WhiteDiamonds.
We’re sure that the video for “Perfume” will be another flawless addition to Britney’s fragrance collection, and we can’t wait until it marks its territory all over EXISTENCE ITSELF.
