I was walking through Macy's and tried some new designer frags since I haven't in a long while. Bleu was one of the best IMO. I hate to admit the other one I liked, and I remember not liking it much the last time... Le Male. The new Varvatos frag, Star something, was very good too, it fits into the "generic, fresh and boring" theme that everyone has going on, but it is pleasant and has less of a synthetic edge to it than most.
Terre d'Hermes is also a good office frag IMO, used in moderation... and it is unique among a ton of bland "fresh" frags.
I also randomly ordered a few niche samples, and biehl parfumkunstwerke mb02 fits your requirements and is more original... it is made by Mark Buxton from Comme des Garcons, and its almost a mix of CdG 2 Man and Prada Infusion d'Iris. eo02 smells like a super high quality fresh scented deodorant stick, and might fit the bill too. For me, it smelled too much like a body spray, but as always with frags, ymmv... Anyway, mb02 is well worth looking into if you want something unique, it's far better quality than anything at Macy's, and it's not super-expensive:http://www.luckyscent.com/shop/secti...erke/mb02.html
