If you like modern French organ music, you will love the whole-tone mode. It comes very handy in improvisation and creates a unique character. This is because it doesn't have any half-steps, it consists entirely of whole-steps.
You can use it whenever you want to create a feeling of uncertainty, tension, mist, swamp etc. This is because, in this mode you can't play major or minor chords - only augmented chords. I hope you will try it in your improvisations.
