Please Help Identify Iris

I have had much success growing this Iris but I dont know its name. A few years ago I was at a local nursery and a kind lady asked me if I wanted some Iris's. I gladly accepted without knowing what an iris was, as she told me they were digging them out at some local church and going to throw them out. I left them hanging in a bag in my garage till fall and planted them, too late I know...but they all came up but no flowers. Now, after a few years of proper care they I have hundreds of flowers when they are in bloom. They also have a strong sweet sent when they are in bloom. I really have fallen in love with Iris's since. Any help on a name would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Scott,
That's a lovely historic iris. My first iris is similar, my grandfather grew it here, and it also smells heavenly.

It may not be possible for anyone to ID it for you, since there are so many of that particular color and shape.
I have not been able to identify mine.

Thanks for posting the photo, it looks like spring.
