Can anyone help ID these two irises please?

I have irises in my yard, and I would love to know exactly which type each of them are, if it's possible. I have a pale yellow bearded one which I thought was similar to a type called KALPA, but I just don't know enough about them to be sure. Does anyone know? They grow about 18 inches tall, and smell sweet.

Sorry I have no idea how to post multiple photos, can anyone ID this purple iris? It grows over two feet tall, smells like strawberry pez candy, and multiplies like crazy!

I think I may have discovered the yellow iris is called a Historic Flavescens, 'Flavescens' De Candolle 1813; is that right? Still searching on the purple iris, so many purple ones look so similar to one another.

Could this be the purple one?

Before you put a positive Id on them..Find a reliable seller and buy a start of them. That way you can grow them side by side to make 100 percent sure that you have correctly named your iris
