Fragrance Fusion allows customers to make their own personal scents

For two hours Tuesday, Jake Rix helped a man and woman sample and blend essential oils until they had come up with the perfect colognes for one another.

Rix and his mother, Susan, are hoping that the idea of creating customized scents catches on, having opened a new shop in Lincoln Heights built around that concept.


“It’s fun to have something nobody else has,” Susan Rix said.

Fragrance Fusion is owned by John Higgins, a businessman and former Wichitan who lives in Kansas City. He and Susan Rix have been friends since their high school days at Kapaun Mount Carmel. Rix is serving as the store’s consultant, while her son manages the shop.

Rix owned a similar fragrance store in Overland Park for 20 years. Higgins became “intrigued” by the idea of owning one himself after buying bath salts there for use in homes he operates for Alzheimer patients. The mineral-rich salts, which Rix mixes herself, helped sooth the patients.
