Do we need to memorise a few esters and their respective smell or flavour?

Are there any small molecules, apart from water that we should be aware of as per the study design, that are considered 'condensation reactions'?

You should not need to remember anything about particular esters, such as their smells or flavours. Instead, focus on how they are created (alcohol and carboxylic acid) and what the functional group looks like.

Condensation reactions are a result of water being a product. On the other hand, hydrolysis reactions are a result of water being a reactant.
