The Tyrant’s Only Perfumer is an enjoyable story, albeit with many clichés. It’s like a combination between 50 Tea Recipes from the Duchess and The Villainess is a Marionette.

The Tyrant’s Only Perfumer Summary
A young woman sick with an incurable illness closes her eyes for the last time. Only to wake up as Ariel Winston, an antagonist of the novel she had loved reading before her death.
Death lies before her if she continues down the path the real Ariel has been going towards. She quickly breaks up with Duke Cedric Evans.
He is not only the protagonist of the novel, but a man who is cursed with a condition. This condition makes him become bloodthirsty when he does not smell a specific scent constantly.
Cedric has been dating Ariel due to her status as his personal perfumer. Suddenly he seems reluctant to distance himself from her.
Just what is wrong with this man, and how will this change the events of the novel? Will Ariel be able to live the life she wants?Copin Comics
The Tyrant’s Only Perfumer is definitely not unique in any way, but I still enjoy it.
It has a mixture of two other stories, at least in my opinion.
It’s slightly similar to 50 Tea Recipes from the Duchess, mainly because our female lead is good at making scents. In her previous life, she lost all senses – including smell.
Thus, when she reincarnates into a different person she’s very happy over it, until she realizes who she became.
The original Ariel was an antagonist and dies in the story, which the reincarnated female lead doesn’t want to die again.
The story is also similar to The Villainess is a Marionette, mainly because the female lead is also ditching the male lead.
However, the male lead suddenly has a change of heart and wants to be close to the female lead.
It’s quite a typical story trope, which isn’t too grating but I can’t help but to feel like the man is just being a pushover.
As for the art, it’s utterly gorgeous and I love it! The character design of both the male and female lead are top-notch.
Final thoughts: I really like the story and I think you should definitely go read it!
