Definitive answer please. Why does ice smell?

I bought a bag of ice from Waitrose that has a resealable fastening that appears airtight. Nevertheless, two thirds of the way down the bag, it has that distinctive smell, not unpleasant. What is that? None of the answers I've read anywhere seem compelling. The smell is more chemical than biological. Perhaps I mean inorganic rather than organic. Let me know.
