What about 'amour-propre' which means love of oneself, not clean love?
This question relates to:French lesson "Propre = own / clean (adjectives that change meaning according to position)"

Thanks for pointing this out Sara...
I would say amour-propre would translate as self-respect and sometimes pride.
Cette victoire a renforcé l'amour-propre du footballeur = This victory boosted the footballer's pride
Hope this helps!
