Early on Thursday morning, afaqs! learnt that the Gulabari (rose water, face freshener, moisturising cream and lotion) account has moved to Ogilvy's Delhi-based third agency, Brand David. The agency already handles the creative duties for Fem's hair removal cream (Fem Complete Hair Removal System). The incumbent on the Gulabari account is Bates 141.

Bates 141 also handled the creative duties for the Uveda (face wash, moisturiser and fairness cream) account, the mandate for which has now moved to Law & Kenneth.
