Bouquet recipe: Eros, for passionate love

A bouquet that sparkles

Named after the Greek god of love and fertility, Eros represents romantic, passionate and physical love. Eros is intense and fiery – the longing that is felt when you can’t quite keep your hands off each other. We're symbolising that with an sensual and creative bouquet.

Eros: passionate love

Eros - named after the Greek god of love and fertility - represents romantic, passionate and physical love. This love represents desire for another. Eros is the intense and fiery love that you feel when you can't keep your hands off each other.

If there is one flower that stands for love, it's the rose. It's no wonder that we incorporated this flower into the bouquet. But you also shouldn't overlook the carnation, a symbol of passion, desire and romance, and the anthurium, whose looks speak for themselves. ? To further emphasise that Eros is a love full of passion, we chose a vase in the shape of a heart and intense red and pink tones.
