About Us

How We Started

Sandesh Agarbathi Co. was started off as a small cottage industry in 1970, in the city of Bangalore.

Mr D.N.P. GUPTHA who is our founder is a man with a strong creative bend. He experimented endlessly and dabbled in creating newer fragrances and pursued refining the aroma until the right strength is achieved.

He engaged a small group of neighbours to hand roll the incense sticks for him, after training them in the trade. He laid high emphasis on quality of the product and promoted strict adherence to quality.

Our fragrance formulations are the regarded as some of the best in the industry.

Sandesh invests heavily on its people and R&D and that has been one of the factors why its range of products are matchless. It has a team of highly experienced Perfumers, and a labour force that is highly skilled in hand rolling quality incense. Our production capacity also has been a reason as to why our customers would not look elsewhere. For decades, we have seen our stock movement and can anticipate demands. Therefore, we have built redundancy of work force to meet extra demand when required.
