A nine-year veteran on the street, Ciel Marin can easily be credited with believing in the neighborhood before anyone else did. Arranging flowers for parties at all of Seoul’s hottest hotels (JW Marriott, W Walkerhill, Banyan Tree and more), this flower botique manages to make well-thought-through, elegant bouquets for walk-in customers. Also, available for purchase are preserved flowers (real flowers, but made to last for about three years) as well as potted flowers, cacti and vases. Upon setting foot in the store you’ll be greeted by three smiling sisters, who also host flower-arranging classes at the shop. In a city that sees businesses open and close on a daily basis, Ciel Marin has, without a doubt, found the secret to longevity.
