I am on the same search as you right now. I want some new scents that aren't too sexy for work but aren't boring either. The ones that are working for me now and I think you might like are:
Lanvin L'Homme - has just a hint of an aqua note with fresh lavender and a very slightly woody/vanilla drydown, though no one would call it an oriental. LL plays an interesting balancing act of straddling several categories and really lasts. This has been called the "clean white shirt" scent for good reason.
M7 Fresh - Nearly impossible to sample on this side of the pond, but if you have smelled the original M7 imagine replacing the grape soda top note with lemon+grapefruit, throw in a little ginger, and generally "turn down the volume" of the agarwood. M7F is a perfect case of taming a big sexy beast and making it really wearable without losing the spirit of the original. Lasts most of a work day.
Mania is pleasent, but doesn't do a lot for me. I have been hearing Allure Sport mentioned quite a bit lately which is making me curious to smell it again. I cannot remember anything about it, but I know I'm not a fan of the original Allure.
