That doesn't even look like the same bloom!  Loic, I'd say your bloom was either a lot older than Robin's bloom OR in a much warmer climate.  The colors are not nearly as distinct on your photos! 
Color: Deeper on Robin's bloom
Lines: white on Robin's bloom and fail to reach the end of the beard by almost half an inch!  ( educated guess)
Lines: yellow on Loic's bloom and extend further down a much paler fall. Reaches the end of the beard.   
Beard base extension: (for lack of a better term) Non-existent on Robin's.
Beard base extension: White (& raised?) on Loic's picture. 
Isn't it amazing how much different the blooms can look from season to season and microcosm to microcosm?  Sometimes you'd swear it wasn't even the same bloom!! 
Everyone see why identification of unknown irises is so difficult?
