Subject: Dark matter models: the diary of a particle phenomenologist

Recent exclusion limits of different collaborations seem to invalidate partially the WIMP paradigm. As a consequence, plethora of phenomenological models appeared in the literature, reopening (almost) forgotten windows of masses and coupling. I will review in this talk the different ways of embed dark matter in a coherent BSM framework respecting theoretical as observational constraints, and how these new windows
re-opened from an historical perspective.
