An Iris By Any Other Name

Do you like fruit with your iris? There's a lot of fruitiness here! Too much for me, certainly; I do like blackberry in reasonable amounts but on my skin this turns into a sickly sweet syrup. The eponymous iris is there, as is a good amount of violet, which makes everything smell extremely purple. While the ingredients are top notch, here's no refinement - it's very rich.
It's not necessarily a bad fragrance, just not at all what I was expecting. Why would they call this Silver Iris? Now to chase down some Iris Silver Mist, which I hear is a little more faithful to the concept.
