Brie and Camembert are both soft white, buttery cheeses known as "bloomy" rind that ripen from the outside in. They were originally made in different regions of France–which led them to taste different. Camembert, which was made near the coast of Normandy from a breed of cows who grazed on lush grass which resulted in a slightly sweeter cheese. Brie was made closer to Paris and the cows grazed on stony river beds and had a more savory, slightly mushroom-like flavor. Now both cheeses are made in many regions, and the difference in flavor and texture is less pronounced.
