Is armpit and pubic hair one of the reasons for that men smell?

In brief: Yes and no

All adults have a natural odor, differing some between the genders and between individuals.
There are special glands to produce it, especially in armpit and groin, and the hair may hold the scent somewhat, though shaving won't reduce it much.
