Why is The woman's nose like a tower of Lebanon?

Song of Solomon 7:4 (ESV)

4 Your neck is like an ivory tower. Your eyes are pools in Heshbon, by the gate of Bath-rabbim. Your nose is like a tower of Lebanon, which looks toward Damascus.

Comparing her nose to a tower of Lebanon does not mean her nose is large but rather, viewed from a distance it adds symmetry and beauty to an otherwise plain horizon. Her nose complements and sets off her facial beauty.1
