I like the Gnote is a great application but unfortunately has no app icon, I would like to know if there is any alternative to Gnote working in the systray of Unity.
Note: Tomboy is not an option

Try Zim . It's more of a wiki type application, but it's great for taking notes, and will work with Unity's appindicators.
You can use use Gnote and enable its systray icon. Here's how you do it, run this in the terminal:
gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist "['JavaEmbeddedFrame', 'Mumble', 'Wine', 'Skype', 'hp-systray', 'gnote']"
In the future, any other app you want to have a systray icon for in Unity, run the same command, just add your app onto the end like so:
gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist "['JavaEmbeddedFrame', 'Mumble', 'Wine', 'Skype', 'hp-systray', 'gnote', 'YOUR_APPLICATION']"
Every app in there will be whitelisted to show its systray icon. You can get the current whitelist entries with the following command:
gsettings get com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist
