It's probably the combination of Amber and Orange Blossom that's bothering you. Amber can be sweet, and with the orange blossom it's going to 'candy' it up a bit. I like The One, but remember it was very short lived on me. Disappeared in about 2 hours.
Anyway, I highly recommend Guerlain Homme L'eau for an excellent fresh scent.
It's hard to find, so another recommendation is Dior Homme Sport or Aqua Fahrenheit by Dior. I've also been hearing good things about Prada Luna Di Rossi, but I haven't tried it myself yet.
