The Green-Clad Seductress

The Green Fairy has consistently been depicted in art and verse as a beautiful, green-clad seductress tempting an absinthe drinker into a state of bleary bliss. At FairyRoom, we are so taken with her representations, we are dedicating a series just to her.

The term “Green Fairy” can refer to:

A) The Green Fairy spirit (the goddess of absinthe who leads you to creative inspiration, or, depending on who you’re talking to, tries to lure you in and capture your soul);

B) The absinthe drink itself (as a nickname); or

C) A specific experience (or hallucination) caused by the drink, often involving meeting a green fairy.
