Mahesh Bhupathi and Jinesh Mehta originally founded Scentails in 2017. The company primarily deals in beauty products across colour cosmetics, skincare and fragrances.

In Jan 2019, the startup company released Indian cricketer, Virat Kohlis fragrance brand and after this, it launched skincare brand, Arias which is owned by Bhupathis wife Lara Dutta, a Bollywood actor.

There have been multiple success stories with celebrity beauty brands and licenses in the West. With our product and distribution offering, we feel we are able to offer the celebrity an opportunity to create serious value, Bhupathi said in a statement, as reported by daily news, VC Circle.

The products of Scentials are available offline, as well as online stores, comprising Lifestyle, Shoppers Shop and Amazon.
