There is no such thing as a b#
Yes there is, it is the leading tone in the key of C#, and/or the major third above G# (among other less usual things such as the augmented second above A).
In orchestral and choir music b# is intoned differently than c, depending on the interpretation and what's being interpreted (i.e. Mozart differentiated between G# and Ab but not between B# and C, whereas Richard Strauss was very strict about chromaticism so you'll see all kinds of double sharps and flats as well as less usual chromaticism such as b#).

Just wondering if you guys have any favourites that you use in your stuff...im looking for more of an exotic, darker, jazzier kinda feel..feel free to post regardless though! Thanks!
Use scales for experimenting with music but don't "try" to create something from a scale. That's a road block.
and with all the scales from the above scale web site (dolmetsch) I created a scale file that I loaded in ThumbJam and now after I create something cool in Logic using my customized Environment Macros, I can improv using ThumbJam with the scale I was using in my Logic project or experiment with ThumbJam by switching scales to see if a different scale sounds cool against the scale in my Logic project.
And yes, I can record all this into Logic as well.
