Philautia, for self-love

Philautia is a healthy dose of self-acceptance. Philautia includes all of your imperfections, it means standing up for yourself and understanding yourself. Valentine's Day is the perfect time to reflect on this love and treat yourself to a beautiful bouquet. 

The Philautia bouquet

Although the ancient Greeks did not mean self-love to be narcissistic, we've nodded to this association by including narcissus, otherwise known as the daffodil, in this bouquet. Supplemented with the just as yellow mimosa, this bouquet just radiates towards you. The yellow ranunculus adds some extra charm and the classic rose should of course not be missed on the day of love. The Philautia bouquet can't get enough of itself. And neither can we!
