Boursin is making the real cheese going into it.
Right. There is only one Boursin, as it's a brand name of mild flavored cheese, not a type of cheese. Its named after it's inventor, a Frenchman. He also named the type of cheese used to make Boursin, but I forgot what that is.
Alouette is another brand name for basically the same thing.
