For a boozy, smelly, wordy, meaty trip...

I'm headed to Paris for two weeks, and I need advice about alcoholic drinks to try, amazing experiences for a perfume-lover, Paris-themed books to read (and where to read them), long walks, and how to maintain a high-protein, low-carb "regime".

Alcohol: I want to try some special French drinks other than wine and beer but I don't know what to order (and when).
Perfume: Looking for some stores that would be friendly to a young person looking to test a lot and browse in peace. I much prefer small boutiques to department stores, and I am generally unwilling to spend more than 100€ on a single bottle. I enjoy small labels like Le Labo, CB I hate perfume or Byredo, plus hard to find classics.
Books: Particularly interested in novels set in a particular place that I could visit.
Food: I've been in France for a month already and if I see another baguette I think I'm going to hurl. Aside from self-catering are there any options for a high-protein breakfast? Where can I get a good deal on a steak or fish lunch? And where should I go for some great soup, particularly onion?
Thanks in advance!
