I believe I saw a thread regarding this soap.  If I remember right, some said that they had a problem creating a good lather and attributed it too hard water.  I live in LA and we have very hard water.However, I use distilled water which costs approximately $.99 per gallon and great great lather especially from hard triple milled tallow soaps.  The photos below are from this morning using Bath House Spanish Fig & Nutmeg.

I used the cream for a while but unfortunately it burned my face. Such a shame cause the scent was amazing

As with many other soaps, that will cause problems for some Gents, I blelieve now it's not only hard water causing lather problems, but some chemicals in the water and/or in our skin, that will cause the lather to crash before it's even had a chance to build up.

I never tried this soap, but only two soaps out of 300-400 soaps I have tried crashed on me: MWF and Lea Classic

I have both MWF and Lea and I have no problems.  Maybe my body chemistry works with these.  Or maybe, it's the distilled water.  I do have a soap that may fit into your description.  It's Edwin Jagger.  I have two of them and I can not get them to lather and I have had one of them for years.  They just sit there and do nothin.

That lather still looks bubblier than I like my lathers to look, to be honest. 

The scent of Spanish Fig and Nutmeg is amazing.  They have the scent in a bath soap and also in a cologne, for those who want to expand their experience with this wonderful scent.  I would love it if somebody like Dr. Jon or another of our wonderful artisans would recreate this scent in a better soap base.

This lather took about 32 seconds, another 32 seconds and it would look much different.
