False
 
Although the double kiss a peck on alternate cheeks, is common in Paris, there is no single norm. The "triple kiss" and the "four kiss" are popular, too. The standard greeting between strangers and in business settings is ofter a handshake.

Here's a website that will help you understand how to get along in Paris.
We don't want to be misunderstood.

Start with a handshake,
"If a stranger of the opposite sex smiles at you, it's best to do as the French do and return only a blank look before turning away. If you smile back, you might find yourself in a Pepé Le Pew–type situation."
