This updated version of my Table of Esters and Their Smells contains 200+ smells from nearly as many esters.
Best of all are the phenylacetates that I’ve added, which smell like honey, chocolate and jasmine. I’ve also freshened up the fonts and added text labels where they were necessary. Take a look! 🙂
If you have any questions about this chart, just drop me an email or join the Reddit discussion here.
Feel free to use it as you wish. 😉

I tried making esters of
And added Propanoic and ethanoic acid to each one. They all smelled like nail polish remover. Did I do something wrong?
You need to add a catalyst and warm it up slightly in warm water. Make sure you read the instructions and wear all the appropriate PPE (safety equipment) because doing it incorrectly can be VERY dangerous.
Hi. I used sulphuric acid as a catalyst and I warmed it in a beaker of boiling water. The smells were still incorrect.
