Anybody tell me how to draw the straw on perfume or aftershave bottles? Its a circle with an extruded cut but how do you get the curve on it ? ?? Lofted base with guide curves ??

Use a Swept Base of two concentric circles and a path, or better, use a Swept Base with the circle that creates the body, and a Swept Cut with the smaller circle and the same path as before.

look man what you need is a totally different thing. The command that you need is a spline on surface. Go to tools-sketch entities-spline on surface.
That way you can draw splines on the parfume bottle and you can use swept or loft like Mr. Wolf explained. Good luck.

Conor, Yes, you could also use the "Lofted Boss/Base" command with "Guide Curves" if you so desire. You would also use the "Thin Feature" to get a tube. The Lofted Boss/Base" command would also allow you to to make each end of the tube a different size if you so desired. Forgot to mention. Probably best to use a "3d" sketch and "Spline" command for the "Guide Curve"

Its depends on the shape.
Sometimes its better to use sweep with guide curve(s).
