Why does the woman say the man's appearance is like the cedars of Lebanon?

Song of Solomon 5:15 (ESV)

15 His legs are alabaster columns, set on bases of gold. His appearance is like Lebanon, choice as the cedars.

She compares her beloved to Lebanon, which was known for its fine cedar trees that are majestically tall and straight. He praised her for the same attributes in Song of Solomon 4:4 when he compared her neck to the Tower of David.1
