This study recognizes in essence Absinthe's ambivalent history, glory, nonsensical prohibition and renaissance. It identifies fallacies surrounding the botanical spirit and brings out how Absinthe was targeted, vilified and accused of psychosis, violence, public health disorders and societal problems, based merely on anecdotal evidence against pharmacological reality. With tide turned and chips heavily stacked against, the green fairy was banned almost worldwide. Heavily influenced and deceptive claims on Thujone, a prime constituent and its neurotoxic effects are no way linked and scientifically validated. This largely establishes that Absintheurs with moderate consumption of legally defined drink has very little to fear. Mainly down to Absinthe advocates on the front line, getting to their objectives and driving the renaissance, Green fairy earned its share in line with the honorable reputation. With Absinthe legal again and the spirit gaining ground in the global market place, sitting back with a glass of absinthe is again a stylized activity.
