I don't think so. The only way he will project his presence is to be unwashed and project a smell of stinking sweat. It won't go down well in a business environment. In a social environment, being unwashed doesn't go down well either - shows his ignorance of basic hygiene, and lack of refinement in failing to use the most basic stuff like Brut or Old Spice anti-perspirants.
If he does wash and is clean - well, that's the smell of any man - no projection, nothing saying "I'm here", which isn't the characteristic of what is commonly thought of as an alpha male.
