Which purple or purple-ish bearded irises smell good?

I am about to order a handful of bearded irises from a catalog and very few catalogs mention scent unless it's weird (like the grape one).
When I wander around my work neighborhood smelling the irises, I notice that some have a light sweet scent and some seem to have none at all. I would like a little scent to my irises.
I am not interested in tracking down the owners of the irises I've run across, and when I've asked the few who happened to be easily accessible, none of them had any idea which irises they had in their own yards.
Does anyone here have suggestions for me?
