Does frozen breastmilk smell different to fridge breastmilk?

We’ve had this question from a first time Mammy – if anyone can help, that would be great. She asked

“Does breastmilk that’s been defrosted smell different to breastmilk that’s been refrigerated?

We defrosted some milk for my 2 month old and it seemed to smell different to the milk that we had been keeping in the fridge. Until now, we only ever kept breastmilk in the fridge, so was not sure if it was normal that it smelled a bit different. Was worried about giving it to him without checking. If anyone can help, would appreciate”
