10 x 10: a decade of Tempus Magazine

As we proudly celebrate 10 years of luxury, we bring together some of the innovative brands sharing our milestone birthday

If you are one of the lucky readers to have checked out our stunning 80th issue released this week, you may be aware that Tempus Magazine is extremely excited to be celebrating its 10th birthday.

Launched as a startup premium luxury magazine in 2012, the brand has grown into a leading light in the industry, bringing consumers the latest in luxury news, from watches to wellness retreats; from cars to caviar. And of course, we couldn't have done it without you, the readers.

Here, we take a look at other household names with whom we proudly share our 10th birthday:

Bulgari Hotel London

This stand out luxury hotel and spa in London’s Knightsbridge is one of the jewels in the crown of the Bulgari Hotel collection. A haven of serenity just minutes away from Hyde Park and Harrods, it combines stylish architecture and design with exceptional amenities.

Generously proportioned rooms and suites combine with facilities such as personal training centre and gym, world-class spa and swimming pool, 47- seat screening room, cigar shop and sampling room and ballroom.


Bailey Nelson

Australian eyewear brand Bailey Nelson might not make the eyes water with their prices, but their fresh designs and clever materials are certainly a vision to behold. Established in Bondi Beach in 2012, and with boutiques in Australia, London, Canada and New Zealand, Bailey Nelson aims to simplify the process of buying glasses.

Each frame is design in-house at the brand’s Sydney workshop, created using high- quality and lasting materials such as custom- designed cellulose acetate or ultra-lightweight titanium and hand-assembled for that added touch. With an eye exam service in boutiques to boot, this brand is a sight for sore eyes.


Noble Isle

Fine fragrance, bath and body brand Noble Isle (right) truly brings together the best of British for any home spa. With natural, vegan and cruelty free products, sustainably made in the UK using natural extracts from local producers – including Yorkshire rhubarb, Irish samphire, Scottish barley and Welsh beetroot – Noble Isle celebrates its 10th birthday this year.

With 11 fragrance collections from Rhubarb Rhubard! to Whisky & Water, all available in products ranging from shower gels and hand lotions to body scrubs and reed diffusers, Noble Isle creates a luxurious, relaxing and utterly indulgent experience for every season.


Harry Specters

Harry Specters Fine Chocolates was set up in 2012 with the aim of empowering autistic people through award-winning chocolate. The family business and social enterprise was established by chocolatier Mona and her autistic son, Ash, who came up with the name.

Not only does the Cambridgeshire chocolate factory involve autistic people at every stage of production – from making and packaging products to administration, design and photography – but for every £1 spent, 69p directly supports young autistic people through paid employment, work experience and training opportunities. Not only are these chocolates delicious – they are also good for you.



Rarely does a gym brand hit the headlines quite like Gymshark. Founded in 2012 by a 19-year-old Birmingham native Ben Francis, the company is now valued at more than £1.25bn and has seen Ben rise to the top tier of inspirational leaders. Ben stepped down as CEO of the brand between 2015-2021 citing his youth, instead cycling through a variety of roles to really grow his understanding of market and business.

While much can be said for Gymshark’s range itself – high quality, bold colours and cutting-edge material technology – it’s really the Gymshark ethos that captures the imagination so thoroughly. Ben believes that everything we do today, prepares us for tomorrow – and challenges us all to find our personal best.



Improbable is, quite simply, the metaverse technology company, delivering the expertise and creative tech needed for businesses to harness the full potential of our growing virtual worlds and, as Web3 becomes the new common language, it is more exciting and important than ever.

Founded by Cambridge Computer Science students Herman Narula (CEO) and Rob Whitehead (founding CTO) in 2012, and born out of the gaming and entertainment sectors, the British metaverse company provides the necessary infrastructure, technology and insight to build interconnected user experiences for economic, cultural and social change – whether that’s enriching multiplayer games, live interactive events, entertainment or social spaces. The future is now.


Cavendish Pianos

Award-winning Cavendish Pianos was founded in Yorkshire in 2012, and harnesses traditional British piano-making skills to keep 200 years of musical tradition alive and fresh.

Cavendish Pianos are made by a collective of small businesses – known as the Craftman’s Co-Operative – each with their own skills, from piano builders, action specialists, stringers, cabinetmakers and piano tuners, and with patronage from the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. A range of three upright pianos and two grand pianos are available in the Cavendish range, with a wealth of history in every key. »


Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades

This range of travel-inspired furniture and objets d’arts by Louis Vuitton has been made in collaboration with renowned designers for a decade. Big names include India Mahdavi, Marcel Wanders, Patricia Urquiola, Fernando and Humberto Campana (whose Bomboca Sofa is pictured) and Atelier Oï.

Whether designing a hammock or stool, armchair to room screen, these limited-edition pieces all pay homage to the maison’s historic special orders – include the 1874 bed trunk made for French explorer Pierre Savorgnan de Brazza – while celebrating a diverse collection of global design stars.


Concours of Elegance

Concours of Elegance is one of the most prestigious and elegant classic car events on the planet, and this year will be hosted at Hampton Court Palace from 2-4 September. The event first began at Windsor Castle in 2012, moving to St James’s Palace in 2013, Hampton Court in 2014 and then to Holyroodhouse – the Queen’s official Scottish residence in Edinburgh – the following year.

It has now been hosted at Hampton Court, famously the residence of Henry VIII, since 2017. This year will see 60 of the world’s rarest cars – many of which have never been seen in the UK – over a three-day event, together with hundreds of fine motors from across the ages.


The Honest Company

Co-founded by actress and entrepreneur Jessica Alba, The Honest Company has gone from a small eco-beauty brand to a global success story and certified B-Corp. Alba wanted high- quality eco-friendly baby products following the birth of her children, concerned they might suffer from similar sensitivities that she had as a child and, after finding her business partners Brian Lee, Sean Kane, and Christopher Gavigan, launched the brand in 2012 with 17 products.

Today, The Honest Company produces and sells non-toxic nappies, cleaning products, prenatal supplements and cots. In 2015, Alba followed her success up with the launch of Honest Beauty, a range of skincare and makeup with the same toxin-free ethos.
