AOS can provide a variety of effective lathers. Today I went with no water, straight to face lathering, and added a small amount of water as I lathered. Lather was dense and slick. If you like it with a little more volume, add more water in a bowl or scuttle and it will still be slick. Wish this were Lemon, though...
