Des yeux noisette--Correct

I thought I was following the rule: this phrase is not a compound adjective, nor does the color derive from a real thing.

This relates to:
Compound colour names and colour names derived from things are invariable -

Bonjour Tamani,

Des yeux noisette is correct because "noisette" is a real thing: it means hazelnut.

Bonjour Laura,
Thank you! Yes, I googled 'noisette' and discovered it is a hazelnut. I wish I'd known that before taking the test!
